Starkey Hearing Technologies, has announced that plans are in place for activities and resources that help raise awareness of better hearing in May, which is Better Hearing and Speech Month.
Starkey reports that while hearing aids can hold numerous benefits for those with hearing loss, the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) has found that nearly 80% of people with hearing loss don’t seek treatment. During Better Hearing and Speech Month, Starkey will focus on raising awareness about hearing loss and the benefits hearing aids can provide.
According to Starkey, hearing loss is one of the most common age-related health concerns, ranked third behind arthritis and hypertension for adults aged 75 and older. Additionally, hearing loss is becoming more common among younger generations as well. One in six baby boomers struggle with hearing loss, and in 2015, the World Health Organization estimated more than 1 billion teens and young adults are at risk of losing their hearing due to unsafe listening practices.
