Father’s Day Ideas for He Who Put His Hearing in Line of Danger

Did you know that adult men are twice as likely as women to develop hearing loss? Yes, you read that right. Studies also show that 14% of adults aged 41-59 experience hearing impairment, and the pie goes bigger as the age goes higher with half of the senior population aged 75 years old and above suffering from some form of hearing loss.

Father’s Day Ideas for He Who Put His Hearing in Line of Danger-2

It’s a fact that men face a greater risk of developing hearing loss. This is true as fathers tend to take a career path that involves loud noises such as engineering and perilous activities such as shooting or motorcycling. Being exposed to excessive noise levels are one of the major causes that contribute to the development of hearing loss.

This coming Father’s Day is an ideal time to discuss this topic with your dad. Help your father take care of his hearing with the following ideas from your hearing health professionals.

1. Take him to a hearing centre

Do you notice your dad struggling to hear conversations over the phone or constantly asking people to repeat themselves when talking? These might be signs of hearing loss. This condition can be devastating to one’s life if left untreated. It can cause unintentional poor performance at work, lesser interest to socialise, and even create problems within relationships. The best thing to go about it is by convincing your dad to have his hearing checked by a health professional. Whether he is actually suffering from hearing loss or not, this will ensure that the next best steps will be taken with the advice of an expert.

2. Get him a hearing aid

A common challenge faced by someone dealing with hearing loss is coming to terms with the reality of it. This Father’s Day, let your dad know that you’re with him in this new phase of life by giving him the gift of hearing. There are tons of different hearing aids in the market whereby your father can choose from—whether he’s the athletic type, the techie guy, or the stylish one. Convincing him to get a hearing aid will help him hear better, be happier, and live life easier.

3. Let him know you’re there for him

Hearing loss is not something that should be taken lightly. People who are suffering from this condition are struggling to carry on with their day-to-day tasks. The best thing you can do is to show your support and offer him your care and understanding. The adjustment period is always the hardest part. Wake him up in the morning when he doesn’t hear the alarm, make sure he doesn’t miss a visitor by answering doorbells, and be with him during social gatherings to help him carry out a conversation. These simple acts mean a lot to someone facing his hearing impairment.

To honour the mighty men of our homes, we’re having a month-long celebration of Father’s Day here at Listening Lab. Find a clinic near you and come bring your dad for a FREE HEARING CONSULTATION with our experts. To book an appointment, call +65 68175100.

I started experiencing loss of hearing sometimes in 2010 (41 years old) owing to some medical issue. I was having difficulties hearing conservation especially in meeting. Thus, giving me the fear in attending meeting.

Initially I started with Phonak hearing aid. It helps amplified the sound and I could hear better then. Somehow, my hearing loss deteriorated further that in late 2012 (43 years old), there was profound loss of hearing on my right ear. Even digital hearing aid could not help. On my left ear there is still about 50% to 60% hearing with hearing aid. I was lost at this point of time. I was considering learning sign language. I went to see my ENT specialist and my audiologist Mr. Bala advised me to go for an CI as an alternative to my hearing loss.

I also thank God for Engineer and Scientist, giving them the knowledge to create such a complex and sophisticate device to help those with hearing loss like me. It will be all perfect if the cost is affordable too.

Also her after service is superb so I highly recommend.

My mum, Madam Kek (73 year old) had the Cochlear implant (CI) done on her left side in 10th September 2019. Thereafter, thanks to the subsequent auditory verbal therapy, evaluation from SGH ENT team, as well as, the support from AB's and Listening Lab staffs; Madam Kek was able to hear, comprehend sound and music from her Cochlear implant, Naida CI Q90, and hearing aid (HA), Naida Link UP, for her right side before end year. We are happy that both the CI and HA have improved mum qualify of life. Now Madam Kek is looking forward to work again to pass her time as she can hear and better communicate with others.

Titus was implanted when he was 18 months old. He is a happy, talkative 6.5 years old now. AB has been with him for 5 wonderful hearing years and we are looking forward to a bright future that lies ahead for him. AB’s Naída CI sound processors are reliable and the technology is constantly evolving and upgrading. When Titus was introduced to Naida Link CROS, his life was enriched. The wireless network established between his Naida CI sound processor and a Naida Link CROS transmitter allows him to hear from both ears. This changes Titus’s life and the way we interact with him. We are also very pleased with the prompt response and service provided to us. The staff in AB genuinely cares! We want to thank AB for making Titus’s hearing journey an enjoyable and a relatively stress free one!

I have been living with progressive hearing loss for more than three decades. Socially, I find myself fearful of communicating with people and at home, watching 'soundless' television programs is a norm.

An unforgettable experience. Trying on a pair of Resound GN hearing aid, I was energized and revitalized and overwhelmed with emotional tears of joy. The Resound GN is truly remarkable and uniquely equipped with three-friendly-user environmental modes that provide hearing comfort wherever we are.

In particular, I like to extend my utmost gratitude to Hearing Consultant. With her profound compassion and wisdom in guiding me, I am confident that I can forge a formidable partnership with the Listening Lab; So that I can rebuild a new chapter of a happy and value-creative life and simultaneously, leaving behind the painful memories of the past three decades.
