It’s Deaf Awareness Week (1st – 7th May) so we’re highlighting a story on Sky News concerning a recent RNID survey. It states;
“One in 10 members of the public in the UK would actively avoid communicating with a deaf person, a new poll RNID has suggested.
“It comes as almost half (48%) of 2,095 surveyed by YouGov said they do not know how to effectively communicate with people who are deaf or hard of hearing.”
At Hearing Healthcare Practice we’ve made it our life’s work to help people to hear better.
Quite apart from the challenges placed upon the deaf and hard of hearing highlighted in the RNID survey, there are so many more positive benefits from experiencing improved hearing. And it’s why we have an empathetic approach, focusing on overall well-being and improved quality of life rather than dealing with a problem.
But, don’t take it from us, hear what our patient, Lianna, has to say.
Lianna struggled with increasing hearing issues as a teenager and was shy and withdrawn when we first met her. She is now a confident young woman who wears hearing aids all day – something she would never have envisaged when she began this journey.
If you’d like to come in and have a chat with one of our team to discuss what we can do for you and what is involved, just let us know.
And, if you’d like to see and hear what more of our patients and friends say about Hearing Healthcare Practice there are lots more videos on THIS PAGE.
