THIS WEEK’S TIP: WHEN IS IT TOO EARLY TO TAKE ACTION?
This week Senior Audiologist & Managing Director, Adam Shulberg is joined by Cubex Audiologist Dr. Saima Rajasingam as they discuss when is too early to check your hearing health.

THIS WEEK’S TIP: HEARING & COGNITION
This week Adam Shulberg talks about the relationship between hearing and cognition.
Cognition is a term referring to the brain processes involved in acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experiences and the senses.
We live in an organised world of sound where cognition, attention, memory and the sense of hearing interact. Each plays a crucial role in listening. The direct relationship between hearing and cognition affects how well we use our hearing to function in everyday life.
When we experience hearing loss and communication difficulties, participating in conversation requires use of more of our cognitive resources. Although it may appear that the communication problems experienced is due to hearing loss alone, often this is not the primary issue and there are underlying cognitive factors that need consideration.

We wanted to share an article written by The Telegraph about the current state of mental health and ways you can look to improve your mental health. One in 10 teenage girls are being referred to NHS specialist mental health services and one in three GP sick notes are for mental health reasons, but we are now in a time of great change for mental health.
There is a much greater awareness of mental health and whilst the health industry is much better equipped to help those suffering, the article discusses putting some of the onus back onto self-care regimes.
THIS WEEK’S TIP: GET YOUR HEARING CHECKED AS REGULARLY AS YOUR VISION
As with the eye, the ear’s performance is affected by wear and tear. However, reduced vision gradually makes reading harder as the letters get smaller, but hearing loss is different.
“It’s like a Jigsaw puzzle with pieces missing or reading a book with letter’s missing”
