Regardless of your age, untreated hearing loss can take its toll, it tends to come on so gradually that it tricks you into obliviousness and robs you of more than you realize, sooner than you realize. Hearing loss is the fastest growing, and one of the most prevalent, chronic conditions facing Canadians today.
According to Statistics Canada, more than one million adults across the country reported having a hearing-related disability (StatsCan, 2002). A study for WorkSafe BC found that 25 percent of young people entering the workforce had the early warning signs of hearing loss (WorkSafe BC, 2005), illustrating that hearing loss is affecting people at younger and younger ages. Fortunately, hearing test are readily available at Soundwave Hearing Care.
