Noise affects us all

Too often we take our hearing for granted. It is only when we can’t hear the twitter of birds, the punchline of a joke, the television or the latest family gossip that we realise that we are missing out on life. Very often it is somebody else who notices.

With trafficroad worksmobile phonescar alarms, the drone of television and relentless background music in shopping centres, restaurants and pubs, there is rarely a quiet moment. Some of this ‘toxic’ noise may be loud enough, or prolonged enough, to damage our hearing.

In the UK, around 9 million, or one in seven, people have hearing problems. Only a quarter of those who could benefit from wearing hearing instruments actually wear them. What’s more, it is estimated that it takes an average of 15 years for people who suspect that they have a hearing loss to finally decide to seek help.

There are many reasons for poor hearing and a hearing loss can be complex and very individual. The longer it is left untreated, the more difficult it is for the brain to retain the memory of sound.

Since having my new hearing aid fitted my tinitus has greatly improved. I could not recommend The Private Hearing Aid Company highly enough.

Mrs S Waldie, Morecambe

My new hearing aid has enabled me to enjoy the television and radio; it has allowed me to realise what I was previously missing out on.

I was well advised and well attended to and the outcome has given me a better life. It is a joy and a pleasure to recommend this company.

All hearing tests are free and without obligation, and entirely confidential. Only by having a hearing test can we ascertain whether you are a candidate for a hearing aid or not. Any aid supplied by us carries a 30-day written satisfaction or money back guarantee.

Our repair service to customers old and new is fast and efficient for most types of hearing aids. We know only too well how a hearing aid is missed when something goes wrong or if it needs cleaning or servicing.

Batteries can be bought in any of our hearing aid centres or by post from us direct. Our clients also make savings by the use of battery voucher books or buying by the box.
