The Benefits of Treating Hearing Loss

Hearing loss often impacts people in a myriad of ways.

From making it tough to spend time with loved ones and participate in social outings, to enjoying everyday activities like listening to music or watching TV. Hearing loss symptoms create barriers to hearing and communication that impacts everyday life. Fortunately, there are effective treatment options that not only transform hearing but overall health and wellness in significant ways.

Treatment offers countless benefits that help people with hearing challenges live fully. Our practice is invested in providing tailored hearing solutions that meet your specific hearing needs. Comprehensive support and treatment maximize hearing capacity as well as improve communication, relationships, overall health, and much more. Major benefits of treating hearing loss include the following:

Benefits with Communication

Hearing loss produces numerous symptoms that take a toll on communication. Symptoms like tinnitus (a buzzing or ringing noise in the ears), muffling or distortion of sounds, words sounding slurred, etc. create barriers to hearing and communicating. This often results in people with hearing loss struggling their way through conversations - pretending to hear, missing words or parts of a conversation, asking others to repeat themselves, etc.

The most common treatment for hearing loss is hearing aids. These electronic devices are equipped with technology that absorbs, amplifies, and processes speech as well as sound. This alleviates hearing loss symptoms and increases one’s capacity to hear. Without the barrier of symptoms, people are better able to hear and communicate with others. Hearing aids provide ample support that enables people to navigate conversations more easily and comfortably. This supports effective communication and facilitates smooth as well as enjoyable conversations.

Benefits to Our Relationships

Relationships are also often affected by hearing loss. Communication is foundational for sustaining relationships. Untreated hearing loss can make conversations difficult which often leads to avoiding communication. This can look like shortening interactions, experiencing miscommunication, and conversations that feel like a lot of work. People often report feeling unheard or ignored by their loved ones with hearing loss. This can produce tension, distance, and frustration in relationships.

A major benefit of treatment is that it improves relationships by strengthening communication. With the greater capacity to hear, people are better able to readily participate in conversations and spend time with loved ones. People can engage in daily activities like watching TV, listening to music, spending time in the kitchen or out at a restaurant, etc. Being able to easily participate in these activities and move through these settings with others supports quality time. This strengthens connection and closeness which enhances relationships.

Benefits to Our Social Life
Social withdrawal is another common outcome of untreated hearing loss. Due to strained communication and all the energy conversations require, people often avoid it. This includes skipping out on social events, spending less time with loved ones, and not participating in social activities. Social withdrawal impacts relationships as well as mental health and wellness. Studies show that people with untreated hearing loss can be more likely to develop depressive symptoms. The treatment effectively alleviates this by providing significant hearing support. Hearing aids enable people to navigate social settings with much greater ease. They also offer a range of features and settings specifically designed to support hearing needs in environments with higher noise levels like social environments.

Benefits to Our Overall Health
Treating hearing loss provides numerous health benefits that enhance the quality of life. This includes strengthening cognitive functions and brain health, increasing spatial awareness, and boosting mental health. Research shows that untreated hearing loss can increase several health risks including cognitive decline and associated conditions like dementia, accidental injuries (falls), and depressive symptoms. By transforming hearing capacity, cognitive functions are better supported, people are more in tune with their environment, and social life is also enriched. This alleviates increased health risks and supports overall happiness and wellness.

Benefits to Our Careers & Finances
Studies show that people with untreated hearing loss can be more likely to earn less compared to people without hearing loss. Treatment closes this gap by supporting hearing in the workplace. This enables people to manage work responsibilities, communication, and daily work tasks more easily and effectively which supports productivity. This highlights that treatment supports work performance and career trajectory.

I had been able to obtain hearing aids from other resources. But with a serious case of tinnitus and a loss of hearing high pitched sounds, I decided to try and enhance my quality of life by seeking a stronger solution to those problems. Jeff has absolutely, and professionally, helped with those ailments. His treatment and relationship with me is professional yet "old school" caring and courteous. Any problem is quickly taken care of. While there is no cure for tinnitus I feel Jeff has given me the best solution for moving forward with minimum discomfort. I can now enjoy my grandkids even more. I highly recommend Jeff and the Glendora Advanced Hearing Aid Center.

After visiting Advanced Hearing Aid Center and meeting with Jeff Kim, I knew I was dealing with a true professional. He takes his position very seriously, is current with technology and understands all the products available in the market. He’s a sommelier in the hearing business if you will and pairs your hearing needs with the right hearing aids. Extremely impressed with every interaction with Jeff and would recommend Advanced Hearing Aid Center in Glendora to anyone that requires assistance with any hearing issues.

This is an excellent hearing aid center - the office is friendly and professional. I had the pleasure of seeing Jeff Kim HIS at the Advanced Hearing Aid Center, and he is great! Both of my hearing aids (ReSound LiNX Quattro) went through the tests and he explained everything that was going on. I felt at ease and I knew I was in good hands. If you are thinking about getting your hearing aids test or believe you are suffering from hearing loss, you should definitely give Jeff Kim a call. 👂🏼 #AdvancedHAC #CheckYourHearing #HearWellStayVital #ReSound

I had contacted Jeff in need of some hearing aid maintenance and hearing tests performed as it was years since seeing an audiologist. Jeff was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating with all of my needs. It is hard nowadays to find an audiologist who is up to date on all there is to know and that has multiple resources under their belt, I was extremely satisfied with my visit that Jeff and Advanced Hearing Glendora will now be my go to spot for all audiology and hearing aid needs!

While searching for a hearing aid specialist I chose Advanced Hearing Aid Center do to fact they didn't have a 2 week waiting list. Jeff has got to be the greatest person I have ever dealt with in the medical care profession. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in his field, he takes his time and really makes you feel that your hearing is as important to him as it is to you. If you need hearing aids Jeff is the one to see!

I have been going to Advance Hearing Aid Center in Glendora for several years. I have found Jeff to be very helpful in getting the right type of hearing aid when I needed my old one replaced. He explained in detail how the new one worked compared to the old one. I have been impressed by his level of service. I highly recommend him. Note: This is Richard Legarra and I don't know why it comes up with my wife's name. I cannot change it.

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Kim's for over a year now and we have the highest regard for Dr. Kim and the Advanced Hearing Aid Center. He has always treated my husband with great care and compassion and has always guided us in the right area where my husband's hearing is concerned. We have been to other hearing centers in the past and were not satisfied. We highly recommend Dr Kim - Advance Hearing Aid Center
