If you’re reading this, perhaps you’ve noticed some hearing loss challenges recently, but you’ve told yourself that you’re too young to have to worry about that just yet. 

However, hearing loss is totally normal for many young adults, and for some, it’s a part of their life that they’ve been dealing with for a long time. 

We’ve seen plenty of young people come in to visit us that need help with hearing loss challenges – hearing loss isn’t reserved for a certain age bracket! Everyone has different needs for their own different ears, but one thing is for certain: 

You’re never too young to have a hearing loss. What matters is what you do now to help treat it so you can enjoy your golden years with clear, crisp hearing. 

How Can Professional Hearing Care Help Me? 

Hearing loss and hearing care aren’t everyone’s favourite conversation to have around the dinner table. There are negative stigmas attached to hearing aids about getting older that often make people hesitate from seeking out hearing care for a hearing loss challenge. 

Of course, we can’t blame them. The old image of a stereotypical hearing aid—clunky, awkward devices that weren’t subtle or stylish—isn’t exactly a pretty one. But thankfully, hearing aids have come a long way since then. 

Advanced hearing aid technology is not only more subtle, but the designs are also much sleeker and much more powerful. Some models can sit directly inside your ear canal, so they’re entirely invisible! 

Starting with a comprehensive hearing assessment, you can learn your current range of hearing and see what you need to succeed, whether that be a medication change, a thorough ear cleaning to remove impacted earwax or hearing aids, depending on your levels of hearing loss. 

To us, hearing loss isn’t a sign of old age; it’s a sign of a life well lived! How many loud concerts or nightclubs have you frequented, or how loudly did you cheer at your favourite team’s sports event? Hearing loss is exceedingly common and entirely natural. Even youngsters damage their ears without realizing it sometimes. 

Untreated hearing loss has been linked to several negative effects throughout the rest of the body, including cognitive decline, balance disorders, dementia and even premature mortality.  

With the help of professional hearing care, you can avoid those risks and take care of your hearing simultaneously.

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.
