As we all spend more time at home these days, you can still take important steps to manage your hearing health without leaving the comfort and safety of your home. According to statistics from the Hearing Health Foundation, an estimated 48 million Americans and nearly 477 million people worldwide experience trouble hearing. A huge percentage of these individuals live with untreated hearing loss and struggle with conversation in many social situations.

If you fall into the mild to moderate hearing loss category, you may be in a position to self-educate, self-assess and self-manage your hearing health. However people with hearing impairment that falls into the more severe category should visit an audiologist or hearing healthcare professional.

There are existing tools you can access from home to help you determine your current state of hearing health. These solutions allow you and family members to take control of your hearing journey and ultimately improve your hearing. Additionally, they are not expensive, time-consuming, inconvenient nor stigmatizing.
