Everyone has their reasons why they do certain things. Big things, like why they follow a particular career path or live in a specific city. And small, like what they’re going to have for dinner or wear to work today.
Most times the reasons are numerous and nuanced. Other times it’s a simple single reason that triggers the decision – like that they have chicken they need to use before it goes bad, or only one clean shirt left because they’re behind on laundry.
Why people decide to finally treat their hearing loss falls somewhere in this spectrum – but is as unique and idiosyncratic to each person as every other decision we make.
Will you choose to treat your hearing loss because you’re tired of missing out, want to live your best life possible and are hoping your loved ones will stop nagging you.
Or will you treat your hearing loss for a single simple reason – that you don’t want to increase your chances for depression if you don’t have to?
Older adults with hearing loss were 47% more likely to have symptoms of depression compared to people without hearing loss. This statistic is based on data analyzed from 35 different studies of people 60 and older.
