Treating Hearing Loss

Though hearing loss is often thought of as a condition that only affects the elderly, the reality is anyone, at any age, could experience hearing loss. Particularly in our town, the number of jobs in St. Charles in “noisy” sectors, combined with the median age of 35.3 suggests that hearing loss may be a health concern. The best way to find out is to take a hearing test. Ear to Hear is proud to be a member of the St. Charles community. We provide comprehensive hearing health services and hearing aid fittings.
 
There are significant benefits to treating hearing loss. People who treat their hearing loss tend to have higher earning power than colleagues who leave their hearing loss untreated. With improved hearing, we are more likely to remain connected to our friends, family, and community. Treating hearing loss also significantly reduces the risk for depression, stress, anxiety, and dementia.
 
Here in St. Charles, there is a large number of military personnel who served in the war in Vietnam, as well as in the Gulf War and in the Korean War. For this group of veterans, now in their later-60s, it is important to monitor hearing abilities. Exposure to loud noises in combat zones, combined with presbycusis (age-related hearing loss) could lead to acquired hearing loss that needs to be addressed.
 
One in three adults over the age of 65 experience some degree of hearing loss. In the US, hearing loss is the third most common condition, after heart disease and arthritis. Hearing specialists recommend that people begin annual hearing tests at the age of 50, but if you are younger and work in a loud industry, it is also advisable to begin to monitor your hearing.
 
That’s where Ear to Hear can help.

About St Charles, Missouri

As the ninth-largest city in Missouri and the county seat of St. Charles County, Missouri, the city of St. Charles lies on the Missouri River and was once known as Les Petites Cotes – or “The Little Shores.” Originally founded by the French in 1769, “The Little Shores” was an important part of the fur trade in the early years of America. After the Seven Years’ War, St. Charles played an important part in the westward expansion of the United States.
 
True to its namesake, “The Little Shores,” St. Charles was considered “the last civilized stop” on the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804. As settlers moved west, they entered lands heretofore unchartered for them.
 
After Missouri was granted statehood, St. Charles served as the first capital of the state, from 1821 to 1826.

Even though it is deeply rooted in US history, St. Charles has a surprisingly young population. In St. Charles, the median age of the population is 35.3 years old. Today, St. Charles is home to a thriving and diverse population with a high standard of living. Here in St. Charles, the major employers include Ameristar Casinos and manufacturing companies such as Coca Cola and Boeing. For St. Charles residents who are employed in these sectors, it is important to pay attention to hearing abilities. Both in casinos and manufacturing plants, noise levels could reach high levels that could lead to permanent hearing loss.
