Many people suffer from the decreased hearing due to various reasons. These reasons are either modifiable or not modifiable naturally. Some problems require surgery, some require medications and some require hearing aids.
To wear hearing aids was initially considered a stigma in society wherein patients use to think what people will say, but they didn't understand if they don't wear them they won't understand what they are saying. But due to the various awareness campaigns, things are changing.
People who know that the solution to their problem is hearing aids they are opting for it and living a stress-free life. People using hearing aids are now better accepted in society and their family.
So people please just don't hesitate to use this modality as this is a boon, not a taboo.
