Better Hearing, Resilience And You!

  Like improved hearing, resilience can make a significant difference in the quality of life – after all, it reflects an invaluable ability to adapt to, recover from, or withstand challenges, change, and adversity.  Since March, 2020, we have all experienced what the effects of COVID-19 have had on our overall lifestyle, health, and well-being.

  Dr. Izzy and his Staff have some tips for building resilience in your life for the present and future:

  • REMEMBER YOU’RE NOT ALONE: If you’ve felt somewhat disconnected in these times, that’s not uncommon. Challenges such as the pandemic have upended the way we live, work, and play. Newer norms can feel uncomfortable. Drawing strength from the knowledge that others share your experiences can make a difference.
  • GAIN EMPOWERMENT THROUGH PREPARATION: If you wear hearing technology, it’s probably no surprise that a little maintenance goes a long way toward helping you stay engaged. Regular hearing aid checks & cleanings will increase the reliability of your hearing instruments and help you feel prepared for anything life brings.
  • THINK TOTAL WELLNESS: Hearing plays an important role in overall wellness, which in turn plays a role in resilience. Did you know? Ears and eyes work together to help you perceive the world. Conversely, hearing loss is linked to cognitive decline, heart disease, isolation, and other issues, so protect your hearing health.
  • COMMIT TO LEARNING: Learning not only stimulates the brain but supports resilience. It also supports better hearing, especially when learning more about your existing hearing device’s helpful features and capabilities – streaming, for example = that can help you communicate confidently and navigate your world.
  • REACH OUT FOR HELP: Expanding and tapping into your network of support can help fortify your resilience. Count on our hearing care team as part of that important connected family network, letting us know how we can help! We HEAR you and we are ALWAYS here for you!

  Dr. Izzy and his Staff are always here to answer your questions about hearing care issues.
