Hearing Aid Review by Ken Roper, PGA Golf Professional

Ken Roper’s Hearing Aid Review

In this video, we will check out Ken Roper’s Hearing Aid Review. He shares his story as well as why he loves coming to Hearing Group. Ken Roper has been a PGA Golf Professional for 55 years. His hearing aids are helping him keep doing what he loves: play golf! Ken has been a Hearing Group patient for about six years now, and he’s still loving HG! His hearing aids help him communicate with people better. He is also able to stay involved with his friends on the golf course as well as with his family.
Above all, keeping active is so important to a person’s health. This is because hearing better is just one aspect of keeping the brain busy and for a better life.

Getting Your Hearing Checked Annually Should Be Part Of Your Wellness Check

Just because we don’t want to admit that we are having trouble with our hearing doesn’t mean that it isn’t happening. People of all ages can experience hearing loss and changes to their hearing. Whether it be from loud concerts, ball games, or work environments, we all suffer from noise pollution in one sense or another. Consider this:

  • 12.5% of American children between the ages of 6 and 19 have had their hearing permanently damaged from overexposure to loud noise
  • About 14% of American adults between the ages of 45 and 64 have some type of hearing loss
  • Also, 30-40% American adults over the age of 65 have some type of hearing loss
  • In addition, 50% of American adults over the age of 75 have some type of hearing loss

Hearing loss is not something we should take lightly. In most cases, the longer you wait to see a hearing care professional, the more difficulty you will have when you do get help. It’s also been linked to many different health concerns. Things like heart disease, dementia, depression, sleep apnea, and brain shrinkage, to name a few.

How Hearing Loss Affects Earning Potential

Untreated hearing loss can decrease your earning power and create tensions in your workplace relationships. Your personal relationships may also suffer if hearing loss goes untreated. Communication with your friends and family will become strained and this can lead to frustration and aggravation. However, when we take action to address hearing loss it makes all the difference in the world. The use of hearing aids has been shown to improve cognitive function, combat personal and professional setbacks, and improve your overall quality of life.

Act Now, Don’t Delay

The sooner you know you have hearing loss, the sooner you can take the action needed to find the right solution for you. In addition, the sooner you find that solution, the less time you?ll spend isolated, disconnected, and at risk for other health concerns. Testing your hearing annually will give you the peace of mind you are doing everything in your power to take care of your health, and maintain your quality of life.
