How well do you hear? Do you know the signs of hearing loss?

Do you need to have the TV, or radio, turned up louder than other people? (See the TV-DEX.)
Do you ask people to repeat themselves against background noise? (Try UNIQUE.)
Do you find it hard to hear people on the phone?
Or fail to to hear the doorbell? (Try Phone-DEX.)

Research shows that our IN-ability for making sense of what we hear increases at a higher rate if the hearing pathway is not stimulated. Although putting off wearing hearing aids may not necessarily cause your hearing to get worse, it may be harder to adapt and get full value from hearing aids later in life.
Essential cells die and cannot be replaced. The earlier you are fitted with hearing aids, the longer you may preserve your natural hearing ability.
Are you one of those who are delaying having hearing aids fitted because you feel your hearing “isn’t that bad?”. We hear this a lot and understand how easy it is to feel you are getting by without. However, early signs that your hearing levels are not as good as they used to be can be measured - just like an eye test. But free.
Even if hearing aids are not needed right now, a simple hearing test every two years can monitor the situation. Then you can act early enough for maximum benefit.
Do you have difficulty with high pitched sounds, like children’s voices? or birds chirping?
...such as  announcements at the train station or shopping mall - or a car or bus getting closer?
Do you find it hard to work out which direction sounds are coming from? (Take a free trial.)
What are the actual signs of a hearing loss?

  • Sounds may seem loud enough, but not clear.

  • Quiet sounds such as birdsong or people talking in another room are harder to hear now than they were before.

  • Some voices are easier to hear than others.

  • Talking in groups is getting harder and harder as you become less able to follow what is being said.

  • When you are out and about at meetings, parties and restaurants you often have to ask people to repeat what they have just said.

  • People seem to appear in the room but you haven't heard them enter.

  • Being around traffic you just don't hear the bus or the car coming from behind.

  • Send for a free information pack (opposite) where your options are explained.

Do you know the signs of hearing loss?

Check if you might have a hearing loss

Test yourself with questions below to find out if you might have a hearing loss.

If your answer is ‘YES’ to any of the questions it’s a good idea to get your hearing checked with your local bloom hearing specialist.

What might cause a hearing loss?

Being exposed to everyday noises, such as listening to loud music, being in a noisy environment, or using a lawn mower, drilling or other noisy tools, can lead to gradual hearing loss over the years. Even the vacuum cleaner.

More often than not tinnitus (or ringing in the ears) will go along with the hearing loss and may be just as tiring as the hearing loss itself. bloom™ may be able to help.

Hearing loss can also be caused by earwax buildup, an object in the ear, ear infection, a ruptured eardrum, and other conditions that affect the ear.

Absolutely no pressure...

One of the reasons bloom is such a success is the reputation built on service.

This is strengthened even more through recommendations from people we have fitted with hearing aids.

Here is a typical example:

“The service provided, coming to my home, is superb, and the audiologist is very helpful, and someone I would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

She knows my needs and preferences and is able to recommend exactly the right product for me.

The product is also superb, and although the audiologist has often recommended buying the latest technology there has been no high pressure selling,

...and there is a great trial period in which the equipment and even the specially moulded hearing aids can be tried before payment has to be made.”

(Comments like the above come through to us because we continually monitor our service standards with you, the customer.)
