Sometimes it can be hard to know if what you are experiencing is hearing loss or if people around you just aren’t speaking clearly. Medicine.net has some points you can use to see if you need to schedule a hearing care appointment. The points are:
- Having trouble hearing over the telephone.
- Finding it hard to follow a conversation.
- Having to turn up the TV volume so loud that others complain.
- Thinking that others are mumbling.

The first thing they mention is hearing on the phone. If you are avoiding the phone because it is too difficult to understand what is being said then you should set an appointment with a hearing care professional right away. You should never allow hearing loss to keep you from engaging with those you want to talk to on the phone. Once you visit your hearing care professional, let us know! We can get you set up with your own CaptionCall phone and make sure you aren’t missing a thing.
