What you need to know about hearing loss

Did you know what about 20% of adults in the US report some kind of hearing loss? As you age, your risk of hearing loss becomes greater…about one in three people over the age of 65 have hearing loss.

Here are some common causes of hearing loss:

  • Age

Aging is the most common cause of hearing loss. There is no definitive answer as to why our hearing gets worse as we age, but researchers believe that it is linked to a lifetime exposure to noise and other factors that slowly wear down the ears.

  • Noise

Noise wears down hearing if it is loud and continuous. Some workplaces expose people to dangerous levels of noise. For example, according to WedMD, 44% of carpenters reported some kind of hearing loss.

  • Medications

Some medications (over 200 of them!) can impair hearing as a side affect.

  • Illnesses

Heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes all interfere with blood supply going to the ears. There are also illnesses that affect the ear itself: Otosclerosis, which is a bone disease of the inner ear, or Ménière’s disease, which also affects the inner ear.

  • Trauma

Any kind of accident involving skull fractures or punctured eardrums will put your ears at risk.

  • Infection

Certain infections can block ear canals and cause hearing loss.

So what can you do to protect your ears?

The first thing you should do is wear earplugs if you are going to be exposed to loud noises, especially noises that are as loud or louder than traffic. If your workplace is noisy, speak with your boss about ear safety. According to The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there are steps that can be taken to protect workers’ hearing. And, or course, make sure to get your ears checked by your doctor!

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
