Hearing Health Awareness Month: What We Learned

10/05/2020 | Local News

As audiologists, we know the importance of healthy hearing.

It doesn’t just ensure that you can connect with loved ones, but it’s also one of the best ways to reduce the risks of long-term cognitive issues.

With the advent of COVID-19 and the wide-spread use of masks, more patients are realizing just how much of an issue their hearing has become.

We feel now, more than ever, that educating people on when it’s time to get your hearing checked is crucially important.

That’s why throughout August 2020, we hosted our Hearing Health Awareness Month, spreading the word about care and treatment possibilities to people in Fall River, Centerville, and Dartmouth.

These are some of the ways in which we raised awareness:

Helpful and Informative Articles

To help educate the community, we crafted three detailed articles sharing facts and helpful information around hearing loss and the importance of addressing your personal challenges.

Every time someone comes to see us for the first time, it’s the start of an amazing personal journey to better hearing. Here, we shared information about first appointments from start to finish.

In total, we carried out 690 face-to-face appointments and 6,080 calls, and on top of this, our “Hearing Health Awareness Month” messaging reached over 3,000 people on Facebook.

They took me right on time, and the ladies I dealt with were very friendly. The doctor was very knowledgeable and took her time to explain everything to me. I would definitely go back to Duncan Hearing and would recommend my family and friends to go there.”
