11 Warning Signs of Hearing Loss

For most people the onset of hearing loss is a slow gradual process. Many a times, it happens without the person even realising it. As a result many people do not get help for their hearing until a significant hearing loss is present. This would of course make the rehabilitation harder as it takes time for the person to adjust to hearing everything once again.
