I Just Learned I Have Hearing Loss… What Now?

You are not alone. We are here to help.

When someone has a hearing loss, the first step in coping with it is simply acknowledging its reality. This may not be easy to do, but you can’t take effective measures to minimize the impact of a hearing loss if you deny it.

This does not mean that you have to like it. It does, however, mean you eventually need to accept it. Once you are diagnosed with having a hearing loss, then it is time to move on.

Speak with your doctor to receive medical clearance for hearing aids if it is concluded that you are a candidate. Visit our hearing aids page to see the various styles of instruments available for a variety of lifestyles. If you have any questions about our products or services, please contact us.

If you are having an especially difficult time adjusting to your hearing loss and feel alone, rest assured–you are not! The Hearing Loss Association of America provides peer support, educational programs and resources available for millions of Americans with hearing loss just like you!
