Hearing loss is isolating by nature. As the world around us gets harder to hear, there is a natural tendency to stop engaging with it.   According to researchers at the University of Rochester medical Center, social isolation for older adults can bring with it some pretty serious health risks: 
 
  • Feeling lonely and depressed
  • Being less physically active
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Having a greater risk of death
 
On the flip side, staying socially active has many benefits such as “potentially reduced risk for cardiovascular problems, some cancers, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis” to name a few.

Staying connected and avoiding isolation can be as easy as picking up the phone and saying hello to a friend or family member.  When it becomes difficult to engage with others because of hearing loss the best thing we can do is see a hearing care specialist.  Many of these professionals take a holistic approach to hearing care, combining the right hearing aids with other assistive listening devices to support their patient’s unique needs.  Thousands have made the CaptionCall phone part of their complete offering, enabling people with hearing loss to use the phone with confidence.
 
CaptionCall is an active advocate for people with hearing loss.  We encourage people with hearing loss to seek treatment early and to actively manage their hearing health.  Our mission is to help people with hearing loss stay socially connected for a longer, happier, healthier life!
