Relationships rely on communication and shared experiences. Anything that stands in the way of these things can affect the connection between you and your loved one. It’s easy to let nagging doubts slide when it comes to your ability to hear. It may be time to take stock and see if hearing issues have been affecting your relationship.
How do you know if your hearing is affecting your relationship?
You can ask yourself some of the following questions:
- How often do you have to ask your other half to repeat themselves?
- Are you less interested in social occasions due to hearing difficulties?
- Can you still enjoy experiences with your other half that rely on hearing such as watching the TV?
The answers to these questions give you an indicator of how much hearing difficulties are affecting your interactions. If you think there might be an issue, don’t worry. Just book a hearing test today to start addressing the problem. Beltone Hearing can point you in the direction of hearing aids that can save your relationship.
What can hearing aids do to save your relationship?
The reason why hearing difficulties affect relationships so much is that both parties can end up feeling a bit isolated and frustrated. It’s even possible to get a bit defensive with your other half if you’re aware of hearing difficulties, but you’re worried about getting them checked out. The good news is that the solution could be simple. After a hearing test at Beltone Hearing, you can walk away with a hearing device that will change your hearing experience.
We can recommend equipment from our in-house range that is discreet, easy to use, and comfortable.
Once you are all set with your new hearing aid, you can begin to work towards reestablishing excellent communication and enjoying joint social experiences with your loved one again.
An extra boost
Overcoming hearing challenges can actually bring you closer together. You are welcome to bring your other half to any appointments so that we can talk to you both about how your life is affected by your hearing and what we can do to make it better. You will experience a period of adjustment with any hearing device and it is important to have support and feedback from your loved one during that time. We can tell you how everything works and what they can do to assist you while you are adapting to your new equipment.
