Approximately one in three people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 have difficulty hearing. Unfortunately, many seniors who do not treat their hearing loss fail to do so simply because they believe they cannot afford a pair of hearing aids. The costs involved can be daunting, from audiologist appointments to fittings, to hearing aid and accessory purchases.
Caring.com recently unveiled research to find national and state resources that offer free/subsidized hearing aids designed to support seniors in communities across the US to ensure safety and quality of everyday life.
