Breaking the Stigma around Hearing Loss

Over the festive period you may have noticed a relative or friend acting out of sorts. While it is easy to dismiss this as old age or drink induced, did you ever consider it may be due to a hearing problem?

1 in 10 UK adults suffer from some form of hearing problem ranging from mild Tinnitus to acute hearing loss yet the subject of hearing loss is very rarely spoken about and addressed as a family.

We would like this to change and to help have produced an infographic (a graphic visualisation of key information) aimed at helping everyone learn about hearing, the stigmas associated with hearing loss and ultimately to equip everyone with enough knowledge to have an open discussion with someone they care about who may have a hearing problem.
