Fathers' Hearing Affects Family Function and Fiscal Health
Date:6/17/2009

This Father's Day, and throughout the week leading up to it--National Men's Health Week--the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is urging devoted dads to take care of their families by taking care of their own health--including their hearing health. Hearing health affects every aspect of family life, including household income. BHI is offering an online hearing test (www.hearingcheck.org) where dads, and all men, can quickly and confidentially assess if they need a comprehensive hearing check by a hearing professional.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) June 17, 2009 -- This Father's Day, and throughout the week leading up to it--National Men's Health Week--the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is urging devoted dads to take care of their families by taking care of their own health--including their hearing health. Hearing health affects every aspect of family life, including household income. BHI is offering an online hearing test (www.hearingcheck.org) where dads, and all men, can quickly and confidentially assess if they need a comprehensive hearing check by a hearing professional.

"Untreated hearing loss puts dads at a real disadvantage in the home and in the workplace," says Dr. Sergei Kochkin, BHI's executive director. "Unaddressed hearing loss makes it tougher for dads to connect with their children and grandchildren. It heightens frustration and irritation in the home. And it undermines family relationships. What's more, in these tough economic times, untreated hearing loss can undermine a man's job security and performance, cut his earnings potential, and pose a barrier to employment opportunities."

According to BHI, hearing loss affects more men than women. Six out of 10 people
