Not everyone realises the impact that losing your hearing can have on your social life. How simple pleasures, like going out for dinner or catching up with friends, become so much harder to enjoy when you can’t follow conversations because of background noise, or too many people talking at once. It can be exhausting.
At our social meet-ups, everyone understands, because they have hearing loss themselves or are close to someone who does. You get to meet and share experiences and tips with people in the same situation – and have some fun!
Whatever we do, one thing is certain: your hearing loss won’t stop you from joining in the conversation.
