Hearing Loss Presents a Significant Challenge for Rising Number of Caregivers
Date:11/12/2008

blem. Reasons these people chose not to wear a hearing aid include:

-- It costs too much

-- They believe hearing aids are inconvenient

-- They think it will be uncomfortable

-- They don't want others to know they have hearing loss

-- They don't think they need it

-- They don't like the way the device looks

In addition to conducting this survey of 520 caregivers, Songbird Hearing is also a sponsor of the National Family Caregivers Association's (http://www.nfcacares.org/) efforts to reach out to family caregivers during National Family Caregivers Month in November.

"The results of Songbird Hearing's survey serve as a strong reminder to family caregivers of the necessity to Speak Up, which is also this year's theme for National Family Caregivers Month," said Suzanne Mintz, president and co-founder of the NFCA. "This does not mean that family caregivers must speak up for their hard of hearing loved ones, it means that if it is in the best interest of the family caregiver and their loved one for them to wear a hearing aid then they must Speak Up and seriously consider purchasing the hearing aid to improve the quality of life for both themselves and their loved ones."
