The conversation around hearing health has taken a fascinating turn with recent studies drawing a direct line between hearing care and longevity. It’s a connection that not only highlights the importance of auditory health but also positions hearing aids as potential life-extenders.

We are at the forefront of integrating these insights into our approach, emphasizing the critical role of hearing aids in maintaining not just auditory health but your overall well-being.

The Connection between Hearing Health and Longevity

Recent research brings to light the profound impact of hearing aids on life expectancy. A landmark study conducted by Dr. Janet Choi from the University of Southern California revealed that individuals with a hearing loss who regularly use hearing aids have a 24% lower risk of mortality compared to those who do not use hearing aids.

This significant finding underscores the potential of hearing aids to contribute to a longer and healthier life.

Unraveling the Link: Hearing Aids and Healthier Living

The study by Dr. Choi doesn’t suggest that hearing aids are a panacea for all health issues but highlights a crucial point: regular and consistent use of hearing aids by individuals with a hearing loss correlates with reduced mortality rates.

This association points to broader benefits of hearing aids, beyond merely amplifying sound. By mitigating risks associated with untreated hearing loss such as cognitive decline, social isolation and increased susceptibility to accidents, hearing aids play a pivotal role in enhancing quality of life.

Overcoming Barriers to Hearing Aid Adoption

Despite the clear benefits, the study noted a gap in hearing aid usage, with only 12% of participants wearing their devices consistently outside of the research setting. This gap can be attributed to various factors, including stigma around hearing aids and lack of awareness about the gradual nature of hearing loss.

We are committed to changing these perceptions, showcasing the advanced, discreet and highly effective hearing aids available today.

Annette Cross, BC-HIS CEO and President of Provincial Hearing

Annette grew up in a farming family and was familiar with hearing loss because it was in her family. Finding hearing care very interesting, and after gaining more than 10 years of management experience, she started working in the industry in 1992 as a secretary. Her passion and dedication to help enhance lives through better hearing has only grown more since those days. In 1997, Annette had the opportunity to purchase Provincial Hearing from owner Don Allen. Since then, she has grown the business to three locations — Bridgewater, Truro, and Kentville. Provincial Hearing is proud to be one of the oldest locally/family-owned clinics in Nova Scotia, and Annette contributes the clinics’ success to her team’s provision of honest, personalized patient care and their desire to always stay on top of the latest advancements in the hearing industry.
