Hear In Texas

Community Involvement

Community Hearing Care Is One Of Our Priorities

WHO statistics indicate that hearing loss and hearing-related challenges are on the rise across the globe, predicting that nearly 2.5 billion people will experience some degree of hearing loss, and at least 700 million will require hearing rehabilitation by 2050. 1 billion of those (more than ⅓) are young adults at risk for permanent hearing loss due to unsafe listening practices.

The threat of hearing loss for the individuals in our community motivates Dr. Sally and the Hear in Texas team to raise awareness of the risks of ignoring this growing problem in New Braunfels and nearby communities. Besides educating our community, we encourage preventative measures to protect your hearing and promote early detection by offering hearing assessments throughout the community.

Community Hearing Education

Our educational programs provide valuable information about hearing loss and prevention to the general public and health care professionals. We stress how better hearing helps improve your physical, cognitive, and emotional health, and allows you to live a more active, independent, and rewarding lifestyle.

Dr. Sally at Hear in Texas is available for speaking engagements at schools, social clubs, health fairs, and any public or private event of any size. Our objective is to educate as many individuals as possible in our community regarding the value of better hearing for a better quality of life.

As part of our approach to educating our community about the importance of better hearing, we offer:

     

  • An introduction to hearing health, brain wellness, and hearing care treatment for couples or groups.
  • Hearing screenings for groups and organizations.
  • Training seminars for health professionals to provide their patients access to high-quality hearing care.
  • Hearing care counseling, coaching, and literature available on request.

Community Hearing Services

Besides raising awareness about hearing loss and the benefits of professional hearing care, we make it possible for individuals to have their hearing tested in a variety of settings.

Screenings at schools and health fairs are common practices in most communities, but we take things a bit further in order to reach as many people as possible.

Our employer hearing screenings are an opportunity for employers to provide an important health benefit to their employees.

Hear in Texas also conducts hearing care visits and hearing evaluations in nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout the area.

There’s More To Hearing Care Than Hearing Aids

The timely treatment of hearing challenges leads to better overall health. The use of hearing aids improves cognitive function, while those who leave their hearing loss untreated are five times more likely to develop dementia.

Protecting and maintaining your hearing is a critical element in continuing to live an active and independent lifestyle, safeguarding relationships through better communication, increasing safety by being able to clearly understand directions and warnings, and preventing depression and self-isolation.

Where hearing aids are one piece of the hearing care puzzle, better hearing also requires access to the full range of treatment options that meet the unique hearing needs of our patients. Services related to improving balance, tinnitus management, earwax management, hearing aid repair, and counseling and coaching for hearing aid wearers or the parents of our pediatric patients are also a part of our focus on improving hearing in our community.

Collaboration and Consulting

Another way Hear in Texas promotes better hearing care in our community is through collaboration and consulting with other healthcare professionals.

As experts in all things related to the ears, we are available to assist other doctors and medical care specialists with issues related to vertigo and balance, cognitive issues, depression and anxiety, and other brain wellness challenges associated with auditory system functions.
