Technology changes each and every day, and hearing aids are no exception. It can be baffling to think someone would sacrifice having better relationships, better communication, better experiences out in the world and an overall better quality of life by keeping outdated devices.

Manufacturers are continuously finding ways to improve hearing aids and adding incredible new features so it’s important for you to know if you have the right hearing aids to suit your lifestyle.

If you're thinking about skipping out on updating your hearing aids here are a few reasons you may want to reconsider delaying an upgrade.

Spring HearingSpringtime helps to raise awareness about the significance of hearing healthcare.  May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, which makes it a great time to have your hearing evaluated to identify if you are suffering from hearing loss.  For millions of Americans, this time of year has increased their awareness of the importance of hearing, how to protect it, and how to improve it.

Hearing loss can affect people of all ages. That’s why it’s important to see an audiologist at the first signs of hearing loss, no matter what stage you are in. When ignored, hearing loss can have a major impact on both your social and professional life.

“It’s what keeps us connected to those around us, and involved in the relationships that are important to us,” said Dr. Laura Day-Moran, doctor of Audiology at Harbor, when talking about the importance of hearing health.

De-cluttering and downsizing a home can be a dizzying process. The overwhelming stress can even throw us off-balance. However, if you are reorganizing and notice you are clumsier than usual; your body could be signaling something more.

Our balance system, also known as the vestibular system, helps us stay upright and allows us to move without falling. Our balance and equilibrium are controlled through signals from the eyes, inner ear and sensory systems to the brain.
