When I sat down to write this article, I started pondering the phenomenon of hearing loss. My first thought was that most people do not even notice that it’s happening, and unfortunately, it’s usually their family and friends who suffer because of it!

This week, I was Skyping with my parents in Florida when I realized that my father was starting to have a bit of trouble understanding what I was saying. My mother also complained that he kept turning up the volume on the TV to an annoying level. This set off alarm bells in my head.

Please take a few minutes to answer the following questions. This exercise might allow you to recognize any changes in your hearing: 

  • Do you set the TV volume at a higher level than those around you?
  • If you do not turn up the TV volume, do you have to make an effort to hear and understand what is being said?
  • Do the people around you, your children, friends or spouse complain that the volume of your TV or music is too high?
  • Does your spouse complain that you speak too ­loudly?
