That time when I learnt about the importance of hearing – An article by Ruth Penfold, VP, People at Onfido
On 26, Feb 2019 | In News | By Cubex Concierge
We feel so touched by this post by Ruth Penfold, VP of People at Onfido and the daughter of Mr Penfold, a wonderful gentleman that we have the pleasure of looking after. We just had to share.
In conversations with people outside of audiology*, I often find myself struggling to convey how integral hearing is to our identity as humans, or how complex hearing loss is.
Within my PhD, I explored some of the factors underpinning auditory scene analysis, the brain’s ability to use sounds we hear to build a picture of the world around us. As I sit typing this post, my brain is doing exactly that without any conscious effort. I can hear that the clinic room door is open with the gentle murmur of my colleagues talking further down the corridor over the hum of the PC and the faint sound of traffic. The sounds I hear now are meaningful. If you suddenly muted all this ‘background noise’, I would feel uncomfortable and perhaps even unsafe, disconnected from the world around.

Learn how to take control of your hearing health and your life in this 2 day workshop created and hosted by Cubex.
There is no doubt that coming to terms with the possibility of reduced hearing ability can be a traumatic and upsetting experience. On average, people with hearing loss wait almost 10 years before taking active steps to change their hearing health so that they can recover their ability to communicate and improve well-being.

The British Tinnitus Association are currently contributing to a research project exploring the impact of tinnitus on aged veterans. The project is managed by the Royal British Legion and funded by the chancellor using the Aged Veterans Fund.
Tinnitus in aged veterans is a subject which has not been researched before in the UK so they are looking for participants to take part and/or share the information about the project with your family/friends who might be interested.
THIS WEEK’S TIP:YOU CAN LIVE WELL WITH TINNITUS!
It’s always daunting for people to hear that tinnitus does not have a cure, but there are ways to manage and live well with tinnitus, without any suffering or stress.
