There aren’t many feelings a person can experience worse than the feeling of being alone. This is especially true to when it results from a particular problem you are having or because of a personal issue you are struggling with.

And once you start to believe that you’re alone, it can snowball and before long…

You feel as though no one understands.

You feel like you have nowhere to turn.

You feel hopeless about your situation.

Sadly, many people feel this way due to their hearing loss.

Did you know that depression and isolation are common among those with hearing loss and that those with a mild hearing loss are twice as likely to develop dementia?

But it doesn’t have to be that way! The belief that you are all alone simply isn’t true!

In fact, Hearing Health Foundation statistics tell us that almost 50 million Americans have hearing loss in at least one ear, including 1 in 5 teenagers.

Think about it; 50 MILLION PEOPLE yet, as individuals, each of you may feel alone.

And that’s why that despite hearing loss being incredibly common, only 20% of people who experience hearing loss will ever do anything to correct it.

Don’t assume that you have to fight this battle alone. Here at Woodard, we have made it our mission to change that perception.

At Woodard, each and every member of our staff has been personally affected by hearing loss and we know the sort of isolation it can bring. That’s why when you come and see us, you will be made to feel like part of the family.

We believe that you are important. We believe that you matter. You are not alone.

We refuse to settle for less than the best and we hope you will do the same.
