HAWKESBURY, ON, Dec. 8 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr. Hockey has decided to have his hearing assessed for the holidays at a Helix Hearing Care Center in Windsor and encourages all other Canadians to visit a Lifestyle Hearing Network Clinic to do the same. "Our hearing is too important to put on the back burner," said the hall of famer, "especially this time of the year."
Gradual hearing loss associated with aging happens so slowly and steadily, those who suffer from it tend not to notice it immediately, but instead try to adapt to their limited hearing. In fact, the average delay for a person who develops hearing loss to seek services is 7-10 years. The hearing impaired often ignore the increased problems they have hearing, particularly in noisy situations because they think it's a normal aspect of their aging, or they don't want to confront the stigma associated with hearing loss.
"This holiday season, make sure you can hear your family's conversations and stop pretending at the dinner table," said Mr. Howe. Howe emphasizes that "during this special time of the year, it is important that you can easily interact with your loved ones."
