Should I Get My Hearing Tested in My 60s?

by | Apr 24, 2024 | Hearing Test, Patient Resources

A lot of people associate hearing loss challenges with a certain age bracket—ages 70-90, approximately. However, hearing loss can affect anyone, regardless of age; we’ve seen plenty of patients as young as in their late 50s, early 60s come in to see us about hearing loss concerns. 

If you’re reading this, perhaps you’re one of those people: around 60 years old and realizing you’re having some trouble hearing. Don’t worry; you’re not alone! 

You’re never too old, or too young, to struggle with hearing loss. The best way to tackle hearing loss challenges is through professional, personalized hearing care.

How Can Hearing Care Help Me? 

When you think of hearing aids, who do you think of wearing them? Your parents, grandparents, maybe even great-grandparents? The image of a pale pink, constantly buzzing device behind your ear isn’t exactly the best one! 

Hearing care and hearing aids have long been associated with negative stigmas around aging, so a lot of people fail to seek out hearing care out of fear of being seen as old. However, plenty of young people are seeing the benefits of wearing hearing aids regularly—we’ve seen some of them ourselves! 

Seeking out care for your hearing doesn’t just allow you to hear better. Your memory will improve, you’ll stay steady on your feet, and according to some studies hearing aids could help you live longer, so you’ll continue to hear the life you love. 

With the help of comprehensive hearing assessments and, where applicable, hearing aids, you’ll be able to listen to your favorite music with the clarity you remember, hear the people around you at the dinner table, and keep yourself safe when you’re on the road. 

Realizing you need help with your hearing is often the first and hardest step to take on your hearing health journey—but if you’ve read this far, you’re already on the right track.
