Hearing loss affects millions of Americans, but finding out information about hearing loss and hearing help has been a challenge - until now. Hearing-Aid.com is a new resource designed to provide people with hearing loss, and those that love them, with all of the resources they need to attack hearing loss head-on. From understanding the causes of hearing loss and finding a professional to discovering the right hearing aid style, Hearing-Aid.com helps people navigate their hearing journeys.
Hearing-Aid.com was developed by the National Council for Better Hearing (NCBH), an organization of industry-leading hearing experts dedicated to educating and helping people achieve the healthiest hearing lives possible. The site provides a number of engagement options including creating a Hearing Journal to help identify which situations are most difficult to hear in and the Hearing Journey Kit, which allows people to save information from the site that is most relevant to their needs. Additionally, the site can help connect individuals with hearing professionals who can provide assessments and find the right solution for a particular hearing loss.
"There is a great consumer need for an educational hearing health web site," said Barry Freeman, Ph.D., Chairman of the NCBH Board. "We wanted to provide something that would help people move through the hearing journey, while at the same time providing professional resources that can assist people in finding the best possible solution for their hearing losses and allow them to reconnect with all the things they have been missing."
Hearing loss affects more than 35 million people of all ages and walks of life. Left untreated, even mild hearing loss can severely impact one's ability to communicate and enjoy life. As hearing research and technology advances, dramatic improvements have been made in hearing loss understanding and treatments. Hearing-Aid.com compiles an array of information and breaks it into four sections: Understanding Your Hearing Loss, Things to Consider, Your Options, and Care & Support. Each of the sections includes valuable information about hearing loss and finding a professional. Pages are marked if they can be saved to a Hearing Journey Kit.
