Too embarrassed to tell the family I couldn't hear...

Maybe you know someone who is too embarrassed to admit they cannot fully hear or perhaps someone who requires a hearing test?


"At present, 11 million people (one in six) now suffer from hearing problems but in 25 years that figure will have stretched to 15.6 million (almost one in four), according to a new report by the charity Action on Hearing Loss."

Today's advances in hearing aid technology, with invisible digital hearing aids available, to offer a discrete hearing loss solution, will save any embarrassment you or someone you know may experience.

A hearing test is quick, simple and painless, it will determine whether you do or do not have a level of hearing loss which requires the assistance of a hearing aid.

Read about Keith Davis who struggled with his hearing for 15 years, he was "too embarrassed" to tell his family that he could not hear. Does the story below sound familiar...?

If your friends, family or work colleagues are having to repeat themselves time and time again for you or someone you know, save time guessing the sentence and book a hearing test.

Don't feel “vulnerable...embarrassed...and...never full engaged,” this Easter. It can become the worst and most isolating time of the year, despite the fact you will be surrounded by family, you might miss the jokes or fail to keep up with the conversation around the dinner table when enjoying Sunday lunch.

Keith Davis swallowed his pride and has regained the joy of perfect hearing, during daily conversations and activities.


Ways to help prevent Hearing Loss:

  • Avoid prolonged exposure to noises above 85 dB, ototoxic antibiotics, high doses of ibuprofen and aspirin
  • Wearing ear protection around loud noises
  • Do not smoke
