Self-care is one of the most important aspects of living. And while we usually do a good job at looking after ourselves and our loved ones, sometimes it’s difficult to get those closest to us to admit that they have an issue that needs attention. Among these problems that can come up throughout our lifetime is hearing loss. And while we might notice if someone close to us is beginning to suffer from a loss of hearing, they can’t always tell themselves. No one wants to admit that their hearing isn’t as good as it once was, and getting a loved one to see a professional is sometimes easier said than done.
