Encouraging all Americans to get their free hearing assessment* and help others address their hearing health and wellness.
We are pleased to sponsor the National Campaign for Better Hearing—an initiative with the simple but lofty goal of providing a FREE hearing assessment* to EVERY American aged 60 and over. The reason is clear: Research shows significant connections between hearing loss and other serious health problems like depression, mental fatigue, even increased risk of developing dementia.1 Plus, hearing loss is associated with social withdrawal and isolation.2
We are committed to improving community wellness through addressing hearing healthcare needs. The Campaign for Better Hearing gives us an excellent opportunity to join partners across the country in providing access to free hearing healthcare.
How can you take part in the Campaign?
Focus on your hearing: Early detection means improved outcomes
Early detection might not prevent hearing loss, but it may reduce some of its lasting impacts. Together, we can make a difference for the 48 million Americans1 who suffer from hearing loss.
Bring a friend to a hearing appointment
Most hearing assessments* include "familiar voice testing." A family member or friend reads certain words to the individual, so they can see how well he or she understands a loved one's speech.
Share your story
As hearing professionals, we have already helped so many, but don’t take our word for it. If you or a loved one has experienced the difference hearing well can make in your life, we'd like to share your story. Tell us about your successful journey to better hearing.
Do you know the facts?
Studies show2 that untreated hearing loss can negatively affect relationships with friends and family, causing feelings of isolation and making communication difficult.
- Older adults who use hearing aids show reduced depression symptoms and improved quality of life.1
- Only 3 in 10 adults who had a physical exam in the last year say it included a hearing screening.3
- Nearly 50% of adults ages 60-69 have hearing loss.4
Are you one of the nearly 50 million Americans1 with some degree of hearing loss? (If you aren't sure, then it might be time for a hearing assessment.*)
