Audio Help Hearing Centers in New York City and Stamford, Connecticut hosts monthly aural rehabilitation classes to provide an open, supportive environment with other individuals in similar situations. The offerings are ideal for patients who have purchased new hearing aids and may be struggling to communicate effectively.

The classes aim to improve quality of life through addressing hearing loss and its impact on personal relationships, employment, hobbies and more. Part of the classes’ focus is looking at how the brain is impacted by hearing loss and how it can be “retrained.”

It’s true – today’s devices can benefit many other parts of the body and life in general. Audio Help Hearing Centers in New York City and Stamford, Connecticut take a look at some of the surprising ways hearing aids can help improve your quality of life in addition to the quality of your hearing ability.

 

 

healthy food 300x246Everyone knows diet plays a large part in our overall health, but how many of us consider the impact eating has on our hearing?

It turns out that what we put into our bodies plays a significant role in how well we hear. Research indicates that a diet high in fruits and vegetables can actually slash the risk of hearing loss by 30%.

Audio Help Hearing Centers in New York City, Scarsdale and Stamford reminds you that diet can indeed help impact hearing health.

The increasingly popular Mediterranean diet – a plant-based diet that includes nuts and whole grains – can help fight hearing loss. This diet recommends using olive and canola oil instead of butter, herbs and spices instead of salt, fish and poultry in place of red meat. Limit processed foods and sugary drinks, although a glass of wine is permitted at dinner.

Audio Help Hearing Centers in New York City and Connecticut reminds you that you can begin experiencing better communication across your lifespan by getting annual hearing exams starting at the age of 55. If hearing loss is detected by one of our audiologists, we can determine the best hearing aids for you and help you adjust to life with better hearing.

Senior couple eating at restaurantDining out at a favorite restaurant with family, friends and business associates should be an enjoyable experience, but hearing loss can make it more frustrating than pleasurable.

Background noises are in full effect at most dining establishments. The chatter of other diners, music on the sound system, the clanging of silverware on plates, and sounds from the kitchen can all make it more difficult to focus on the desired conversation at your table.

The dining trend toward minimalist, industrial spaces has not been kind to those with hearing loss. Bare floors, high ceilings, and sparse use of fabric such as curtains or tablecloths mean all those sounds are just bouncing around the room. Speech can become almost impossible to hear unless the person is speaking directly into your ear.
