Hello and welcome to my blog

A warm welcome to my blog. Life is exciting but unpredictable, our health and how we age depend on many factors. Our education, environment, work and our personal constitution all shape our life. Yet there is space for us to influence how we respond to issues such as hearing loss. We all learn and adapt our own behaviour and lifestyle to compensate for our disabilities or ill health, and that is in essence the purpose of this blog.

About one-third of older adults have some form of hearing loss. Whether or not we wish to admit that we hear less well is personal but we all want to continue to lead a full and rewarding life. Feeling in control of our own destiny is a powerful motivation, even if a disability gets in the way. I hope you will find in this blog some encouragement and if you are fortunate to have a perfect hearing then it will give some insights into what it is to be hard of hearing.
