Many people jeopardize the success they
may derive from using a hearing instrument
by postponing the decision to wear one. In-
credible as it might seem, research indicates
that people usually wait a dozen or so years
from the time they first experience difficulty
with their hearing until they finally get fitted
with a hearing instrument. In the meantime,
they allow what may be a mild hearing loss
to progress to later stages of impairment
without any attempt to help the problem. This
sets the stage for a form of crisis interven-
tion that may not adequately deal with the
wearer's unrealistic expectations. A better
approach rests with early treatment of mild
hearing loss when the problem is less com-
plicated and the benefits of amplification are
easier for the wearer to recognize.
It seems like a shame to miss out on all the
wonderful sounds the world has to offer. LUCAS-
CRUZ HEARING AID SERVICE, located at 18899
W.12 Mile Rd. in Lathrup Village (424-8450), is
here to help. Remember, although there is usu-
ally no physical pain connected with hearing loss,
there is often a great deal of psychological and
social pain. We make it a point to keep up with
all the latest innovations in order to best serve
you, our valued clients. Hearing loss affects one
out of every ten persons in all societies. If you
suspect that you may be among them, you owe
it to yourself to come in fora quick, painless hear-
ing test. We offer a 40-day trial on all aids.
P.S. The false notion that hearing loss is nec-
essarily a symptom of old age should not keep
young and middle-aged people from being fitted
with hearing instruments.
