Help a Loved One with Hearing Loss

It’s natural to want to help someone with hearing loss. Being around someone who struggles to hear can be frustrating. It puts a strain on friends and family, especially when you know that better hearing can improve their quality of life and yours.

Untreated hearing loss can cause a person to lose confidence, withdraw socially, become isolated or even depressed. What appears to be memory loss or dementia may be hearing loss. Depending on the cause of the hearing loss, a person’s balance may be affected.

"I am very satisfied with the services of Martina Audiology. Mr. Martina is the best audiologist I have been to visit. I have been hearing impaired for 45 years. He has a very caring attitude. He gave the best hearing test I have ever had."

"Mark Martina is great to work with. He is very knowledgeable and provided all choices to me to make the proper decision for my situation."

"I went to one of those chain clinics and fooled around with them for over a year and a half and they still did not improve the quality of my hearing very much. Not only was I wasting my money, but also my time. A friend recommended that I try Martina Audiology and within a very short time I was hearing much more clearly than ever before!"

How can you help?

  • Share your concerns about their hearing with them. Be tactful and be aware that it’s normal for people to become defensive when you bring up the subject. No one likes to admit it’s their hearing that’s a problem.
  • Encourage them to visit a hearing expert, but don’t get into an argument about it, that’s a lose-lose battle. Mention it and then move to the next step.
  • Call and schedule an appointment with us. Then let your loved one know you did it for them. Most people appreciate your concern and will come in to talk to us and get a hearing test.
  • 1 out of 20 will flat out refuse to go, which tells you that this isn’t a priority for them or their pride is still getting in the way. Remind them that if they see the audiologist and the hearing tests show they don’t have a hearing loss, that would be good news!
