Hearing aids to reconnect with people

The joy of meaningful connections with the people you love

Recognising the significant influence hearing loss can exert on your relationships and acknowledging the importance of addressing it is crucial for nurturing strong and meaningful connections with others.

Using hearing aids to start conversations

Hearing aids play a vital role in improving the lives of those who wear them. They help bridge communication gaps in various situations, from family stories to work meetings and social events. By enhancing and amplifying everyday sounds, hearing aids boost confidence and enable clearer conversations. This, in turn, reconnects users with their surroundings, enhancing their overall quality of life.

Communication challenges and hearing aids

Hearing is not limited to everyday conversations and sounds, but rather the connection it fosters with your loved ones—your family, friends, and coworkers. Can you relate to any of the following situations?

Talking to a close relative

"During a video chat with my granddaughter, she wanted to show me her twinkling tutu while gracefully twirling around the living room. As she danced, she excitedly chatted about something that piqued her interest. I attempted to get a clearer understanding by bringing the tablet screen closer to my face, but her words mostly came across as fragmented syllables, making it difficult to comprehend. When she posed a question, I responded with a warm smile and a nod. I didn't have the heart to confess that I couldn't hear her."

Interacting with people in small groups

"I recently met up with some old college buddies. Walking into the café, I was hit by a wave of sounds—people talking, coffee beans being ground, and music in the background. It took me a moment to spot my friends, and Kathy mentioned that she had been calling my name for a while. As the conversation among my friends started flowing, I made an effort to block out the café noise, but it was no easy task! This encounter motivated me to find a way to fully engage in conversation with my cherished friends once more."

Engaging in large groups of people

"Recently, at a family gathering, my uncle took me aside to share a special joke he had saved just for me. If it had been just him and I in the room, I would have understood every word. However, we were surrounded by at least 25 other relatives engaged in various conversations. Despite my efforts to lip-read and interpret my uncle’s expressions, I struggled to follow the joke, and I even missed the punch line. I couldn't tell from his expressions whether he was frustrated or disappointed."

Communicating at work

"Last week, during an office meeting, I had trouble following the conversation. While I could understand Jeremy, Sarah's voice was hard to hear, and when Donna spoke softly during the conference call, I lost track. When Jeremy asked for my input on the client's request, I had to ask him to summarise what had been said."
