One-fourth of Americans age 65+ will fall every year1. If you have hearing loss, your risk for falling greatly increases. In a study2 conducted at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Dr. Frank Lin assessed hearing and balance in seniors and found that those with even mild hearing loss were three times more likely to suffer from an accidental fall.

Hearing screening, hearing test, hearing evaluation. You may have heard all of these terms at one point or another. What's the difference? Is there a difference?
The carefree days of being a kid. Hanging with friends, going to school, joining clubs and playing sports. But some children can struggle in the classroom or with these social settings simply because they may not be hearing as they should.
You have an inkling that something is wrong with your hearing. But it’s not always bad. For example, perhaps you can clearly hear and understand a friend who’s visiting you at home. But in a busy restaurant, it’s almost impossible to have the same conversation. Like a lot of other health conditions, hearing loss comes in various types and degrees, and no two people experience it exactly the same way.
Supply lists, school clothes, physicals – it’s all part of back to school time. But there may be an important item not on your list to get your children classroom ready.
