Here are a few questions to ask if you have trouble hearing:

1. Are you over the age of 65? (yes/no)

2. Do you often ask people to repeat themselves? (yes/no)

3. Do you often think people mumble? (yes/no)

4. Do you have difficulty hearing when there is background noise present? (yes/no)

5. Do friends and family suggest you get your hearing tested? (yes/no)

If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is a good chance you have some type of hearing loss. Approximately one in three people over 65 years of age will experience some degree of hearing problems.
