This is certainly the case and a lot of it deals with the reality that no one ever published guidelines about the safe listening levels for personal devices though the issue has been looked at since Sony introduced the Walkman. Personal listening devices are certainly prevalent in society and might very well account for the increase in hearing loss. This might seem trivial and often people indicate that they don’t have any pain so they must be OK.
The recent study indicates that hearing loss among Americans is increasing and the blame is placed on personal listening devices.
It is quite possible that the numbers will be even larger once those troops return home and we can accurately assess the impact of the war on their hearing.

The real reason people are losing their hearing is because of all the BS on the air waves.. My husband lost all the hearing his left ear following surgery for acoustic neuroma, a benign tumor but one which can kill as it grows inside the confines of the cranium. I’ve experienced difficulty understanding people when there is background noise since I worked construction in my younger years. Interestingly, hearing protection actually allows you to hear better under those conditions.
A survey carried out by Hear-it AISBL shows that only 39% are open about their hearing loss when it comes to colleagues and acquaintances. One of the reasons that people keep their hearing loss to themselves may be the stigma of hearing loss. The largest European study ever carried out concerning hearing and hearing loss, which involved 45,000 participants, shows that one in eight believes that they have a hearing loss. The study also shows that two out of three hearing impaired Europeans do not use hearing aids, even though the study also shows that they could benefit from using them. In the US, 35 million suffer from hearing loss, but more than 25 million of them do not have a hearing aid.
A study by University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison USA has found that, among the participants, hearing loss affected 6% of those between the ages of 35 and 44, nearly 11% of adults aged 45 to 54, and more than 25% of adults aged 55 to 64.

As temperatures rise this summer, seniors need to be especially diligent about staying properly hydrated. Seniors are especially prone to dehydration because as people get older, body water content decreases and the ability of the kidneys to concentrate urine and retain water is reduced. The seniors in attendance at last month’s Oak Bay Activity Association AGM sat in stunned silence as Carlton House presented a $5,000 cheque to the non-profit organization that runs the busy Monterey Centre. The money will go towards funding new audio equipment in the centre’s Garry Oak Room – a room that is used for a number of OBSAA and community events, including “NoteAbles” performances, Sunday brunches and the annual Oak Leaves Bazaar. Carlton House “gives back” to its community each year by selecting a charitable organization working to enrich and improve the lives of seniors in Oak Bay. Community Relations Consultant Alanna Hardinge-Rooney said they chose OBSAA because they wanted to help out the seniors’ association and show their support.


Anyone who’s ever seen a car commercial knows what owning a car is all about – independence, convenience, freedom.
It’s important that seniors and their families understand the ways that aging affects driving, recognize the signs of unsafe driving, and keep up their skills if they are going to be on the road. According to Statistics Canada, people 70 years of age and older are more likely to be involved in a collision than any other group except for young male drivers. It’s normal for abilities to change as a person ages, but if there are indicators that these changes are affecting driving performance, it is important to consult a physician. If it is time to stop driving, it is important to recognize the difficulty of the transition. For more information, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) offers a fantastic online resource that can help seniors and their families assess driving skills, learn about changing abilities and modify habits. It’s a question I hear a lot from prospective residents and their families, and it almost always comes from the men that I meet with. At Carlton House, the answer is that there’s about 3 women for every one man, but in many places, the divide is much greater. The “easy” explanation for this is life expectancy – on average, men live about five to six years less than women. While the aging process can be difficult for everyone, research has shown that men often have a harder time adjusting to the changes, be they physical, mental or social. There’s also the matter of retirement residences not appealing to many men’s sensibilities. While many men I meet joke that they wouldn’t mind being surrounded by so many women (“a thorn amongst the roses” is a phrase that gets used a lot) most of them admit that they would prefer to have some male neighbours and dinner companions. And since men are living longer and longer lives, and as men (hopefully!) grow less attached to the traditional male identity of strong, capable providers, retirement residences like Carlton House will inevitably need to grow and adapt to meet the needs of both men and women as they age.

Like in the military ear plugs were available and recommended but you didn’t often want to wear them for other reasons.
In my personal experience (and that of other people I worked with) it was difficult to hear much beyond someone speaking very loudly close by.
A study carried out by members of Action on Hearing Loss (formerly known as RNID), an UK organization for the hard of hearing, shows that many hearing impaired people are not open about their hearing loss. 20% of those who participated in the survey said that they try to keep it to themselves and more than 16% said a€?I keep it to myselfa€?.
Hearing loss is still perceived as an old people's affliction, even though data from around the world say something else. The only condition is that you provide a direct link to the specific article you use on the page where you quote us. In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients except cream until well mixed; sprinkle over apples. Not getting enough liquids can lead to big problems, including urinary tract infections, low blood pressure, heart palpitations, impaired cognition, dizziness and fainting. Many seniors also have health conditions that make them less able to adapt to heat and susceptible to dehydration. Keep a jug full of ice water with slices of lemon, cucumber or other fruits in your fridge and fill your glass throughout the day. Be especially conscientious about your fluid intake if you’re engaging in any type of exercise or prolonged exposure to heat.


New equipment, including smaller, more modern speakers, will benefit the more than 2,200 senior members who patronize the centre for its courses, clubs and food services, as well as the community members who visit for special events and performances. It’s not surprising then that getting someone to hand over the keys can be a challenge, especially when it comes to older adults who have been driving for decades and rely on their cars both for mobility and for their sense of self-sufficiency. For those who can no longer drive (or who choose not to) it’s also important to know the benefits of not driving, and to have access to transportation alternatives like public transit, ride share programs and motorized scooters. Often, these accidents are due to physical limitations that affect older adults, including reduced peripheral vision, impaired hearing and slowed motor reflexes.
A regular check-up is the best way to keep in top form and catch driving impairments early and avoid potential accidents. Just as getting a driver’s licence or a first car is a very exciting time, losing a driver’s license can be an exceedingly difficult one.
According to the Assisted Living Association of America, the average is about 7 to 1, and it jumps to about 10 to 1 in nursing homes. But for years now, the gap has been shrinking, and the complete picture isn’t quite so straight-forward. Many men of the 70+ generation are used to being strong, capable providers to their families, and active contributors to society. From the decor to the activity calendar, many residences cater more to feminine tastes than masculine ones with frilly accent pillows in the common areas and things like “spa night” on the daily agenda. The management is an impressive team whose leadership reflects the cooperation and cheerfulness of both staff and residents.
If someone was yelling up from the ground or on the radio you couldn’t hear them with the plugs in.
Just under half of the respondents have told their colleagues about their hearing loss and even fewer, 37%, have chosen to tell their employer. The Hear-it AISBL survey also showed, that 43% are a little embarrassed about their hearing loss and 28% are very embarrassed. Fresh produce is brimming with water and include nutrients that help your body absorb and use it properly.
Certain illnesses (as well as medications used to treat those illnesses) can also adversely affect vision, reaction times and energy levels. Be respectful of their feelings and be supportive in helping them to find alternative ways to get around and to still feel  independent and purposeful. They value independence greatly and resist the notion of being “cared for” far more than their female peers. At Carlton House, we do our best to appeal to both sexes, from the colours we paint on the walls to the types of programs we offer. If someone was wearing them you had to get their attention by some other means, wait for them to remove the plugs and then tell them what you needed to. Hearing Aid Center on Merrill Road is dedicated to providing exceptional hearing healthcare. Hearing Aid Centers, we believe that “Life is Worth Listening To”, which is our whole reason for providing the best possible hearing healthcare to our patients.
