Unlike a broken arm or a bruised body, hearing loss can be quite difficult for someone who suffers it to recognize. This is because of the nature of the onset of hearing loss, it is rarely sudden, and often develops gradually. Quite often the very last person to realize they have hearing loss is the person suffering with it. A hearing loss happens over many years in a slow and almost insidious manner. Because of this slow process and the slow change in a person's terms of reference. It can be many years before someone realizes that they have a hearing loss.

Connect Hearing have reconnected me to my surroundings. Being part of the crowd is now wonderful. Before I was on the side-line trying to keep up with the conversation and desperately trying to make those around me know I was interested in what they were saying. The after care and service is first class, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Connect Hearing as ‘THE PLACE’ to go and get your hearing checked
