Have you ever felt uneasy during a conversation with friends because you couldn’t understand all of the words?

You are not alone.

  • One out of 10 Americans has a hearing impairment
  • An estimated 500 million people worldwide experience hearing loss
  • One out of 12 30-year-old Americans is already hearing-impaired
  • One out of eight 50-year-old Americans suffer from hearing loss
  • Three out of 1,000 children are born with hearing loss
  • 1.4 million children in the U.S. have hearing loss
  • The majority (65 percent) of people with hearing loss are below retirement age
  • 15 percent of "baby-boomers" have hearing loss
  • 29 percent of people over age 65 have hearing loss
  • The majority (60 percent) of people with hearing loss are males
  • More than a third of all hearing loss is attributed to noise: loud music, loud workplaces or loud recreational equipment
  • Of the 10 million Americans aged 45 to 64 who have hearing loss, six out of seven do not yet benefit from wearing hearing aids
  • On average, a person with hearing loss takes seven years to begin the process of improving their hearing

This information seems overwhelming, but that is where we come in. American River Hearing wants to pull you out of those statistics. We want you to have the tools needed to get back into the conversations, the family events and whatever it is that makes you, you.

Although hearing loss is not reversible, hearing aids can enhance what hearing you have left. Technology today reduces background noise, reduces feedback considerably and improves clarity. The hearing aids are programmed by computer and feature multiple settings, so they can be adjusted specifically for you and your situation. The size of hearing aids and the many styles of earpieces make them more comfortable and less noticeable.
