Your situation

Hearing loss is very common. Here, you can find information, advice and guidance to fit your situation, regardless of whether you have a hearing loss, are unsure about hearing loss or if a friend or family member has reduced hearing.

Hearing loss is one of the world's most widespread conditions. One in six has a noticeable hearing loss. Noise causes more and more people to experience damaged hearing and the older we get, the worse our hearing becomes. That is a natural part of getting older. When we reach our 70's, every other person does not hear as well as they used to.

Poor hearing can affect our lives and our relations with other people, just as it has a great bearing on our work life.
