Your hearing & hearing loss
Although there are different types of hearing loss and hearing impairment with many different causes, for most people hearing loss is just part of the ageing process.
Hearing loss creeps up gradually over several years and you may not even notice it for some time, but you're not alone. Over half of the people in the UK aged over 60 have some degree of hearing loss or are hard of hearing - but the good news is that with a few simple steps you could be hearing better in just a few weeks.
Understanding how your hearing works and what causes hearing loss is your first step towards better hearing.
