    There is such a pervasive and unnecessary stigma surrounding hearing aids. Hearing loss affects all ages, not just the elderly. If you can’t hear well you can be socially isolated. Work and productivity suffer if you miss instructions from your boss on your new assignment.  Your friends and family can be frustrated that you require special assistance with normal conversation.

    Hearing aids are small, hard to see, and improve your life. They are not issued with Dentucreme©, Arthritis strength aspirin, or a walker. They can make a huge difference if you need them. Don’t let old prejudices keep you from making the most of yourself both personally and professionally.
