Treat Your Health Like Your Wealth

When it comes to finances and your family’s long-term economic security, there’s a lot on the line. That’s why you have a team of expert financial advisors on your side. But who’s your expert team for better hearing, helping you invest in a healthier future?

In Westborough and surrounding towns in Middlesex and Worcester counties, the right choice is Professional Hearing, where we — as experienced, expert providers — treat patients like family and have been helping community members live better by hearing their best since 1993.

With hearing loss’s pervasiveness — it’s “the third most common chronic physical condition in the United States and is more prevalent than diabetes or cancer,” per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — it’s never too early to address hearing difficulties. It’s a great time to take action now.


Key Trends

You need an expert team for your hearing health — just as you do for your financial health.

  • As one of your most important senses, hearing helps connects you to the people, places, and experiences that matter most in your life, so it’s critical to work with an expert.
  • Approximately two-thirds of hearing aids are fit incorrectly, according to a leading consumer advocacy group survey, making licensed, professional care crucial.
  • Hearing care can make a difference in your physical, mental, and even financial health, but it takes an audiology expert to match the right technology to your lifestyle and communication needs.

At Professional Hearing, being a small practice has big advantages for our patients.

  • As a father-son team in a family-owned business, we treat you like family and really enjoy building strong patient-provider relationships that last.
  • We’re willing to spend as much time with you as needed to help you understand your hearing loss and to solve your communication difficulties.
  • We’re able to work closely with you to not only find the right solution for your listening needs but for your budget.

Addressing your hearing difficulties can bring a valuable return on your investment.

  • Seniors who use hearing aids report significant improvements in relationships, mental health, sense of independence, and other important areas of life.
  • Family members also report significant improvements in relationships, social engagement, and more when their hearing-impaired loved ones get treated with hearing technology.
  • Hearing aids are linked to reduced risk of major depressive disorder and depressive symptoms among older adults.
  • Hearing aids may decrease awareness of ringing in the ears or tinnitus, a common condition that often goes hand in hand with hearing loss.
  • Hearing aids may help slow or even prevent the development of dementia in older adults.

Don’t let myths and misconceptions keep you from getting hearing help.

  • Quite a few people may think that hearing loss is just an inevitable part of getting older, but the fact is that hearing difficulties can affect anyone of any age, and nearly all hearing loss is treatable.
  • It’s tempting to believe that hearing loss is an isolated problem, but the reality is that it affects your overall wellness — for example, people with hearing loss can be up to five times as likely to develop dementia, and untreated hearing loss can reduce household earnings by as much as $30,000.
  • Many people might not realize that hearing technology has come a long way, with a lot of power packed into a small digital device that can wirelessly connect to smartphones, FM systems, and PA systems; stream music, TV, and other audio; help you handle phone calls with confidence; and so much more.

If you have hearing loss, you’re not alone — it’s much more common than you might think.

Family and friends can play a huge role in helping hearing-impaired loved ones hear better.

  • Friends and family are sometimes the first to recognize signs of a potential hearing problem, such as excessively loud TV volumes or the frequent need to repeat questions or statements, and can encourage their loved one with hearing difficulty to get professional hearing care.
  • Friends and family are invaluable as companions at hearing care appointments, able to give a different perspective on their loved one’s hearing difficulties, take notes, and provide a familiar voice for test-driving new hearing technology.
  • Friends and family can help make communication easier by being patient; facing their hearing-impaired loved one rather than speaking from behind; helping select quieter seating in noisy environments; and having open, supportive conversations about the impacts of hearing loss.
