he Hearing Professionals Association (Singapore) (HPAS) was recently formed with the mission to raise public hearing health awareness in our ageing population in Singapore.

Hearing loss is very common as we aged above 50 years old. Studies have also revealed that severe hearing loss can raise the risk of dementia up to 5 times. With positive hearing healthcare and better hearing, we can look forward to improving the quality of lives of our seniors in Singapore.

At our 56th National Day in 2021, HPAS together with our associated partners honoured our pioneers and senior citizens by giving away 7 pairs of hearing aids to those whose lives have been affected by hearing losses. These aids were fitted at our 7 member companies respectively.

We have promoted the details of this campaign on social media. Many applications were received and below are the 7 successful candidates.

The association is pleased to have improved their quality of life!

Candidate’s quote: With the hearing aids, I’m able to communicate much better with my family, friends and colleagues. My TV volume need not be tuned higher too. Another important aspect is that I can now hear bicycles ringing from behind which I feel is much safer for me to walk outdoor now.

Overall, the quality of my life has improved. Thank You

Name of candidate : Lim Tong Chin

Candidate’s quote: I suffer from poor hearing due to job related health hazard for many years. Hearing loss affects the social interaction and beautiful sounds around me.

With the new hearing aid, I can have a smoother and clearer daily conversation with family members, friends and company colleagues. Miscommunication between both parties is greatly reduced resulting in lesser argument and misunderstood conversations during gatherings and meetings. With clearer sound, there is lesser frustration to repeat the conversation among my family members and friends. Moreover, it also reduces the perception of me being proud and snobbish when I fail to respond to greetings and conversation. While driving on the road, I can hear other motorist horn thus enhancing the safety of my driving. Although this model does not have Bluetooth audio and hand phone streaming, I still can enjoy music, TV programs and hand phone audio communication streaming through my previous ear aid model. Overall I am very happy that it reduces the murmurs and very soft sound I used to hear.

Thanks to HPA SG 56 birthday gift and Miss Divya from The Hearing Centre for her professionalism in configuring and fitting the device and her clear instructions and guidance on how to use the hearing aid.

Anyone who has problems with hearing should seek help like I did and am glad to say my hearing has improved by leaps and bounds.

Now I can even hear when I am not facing my passengers. My hearing aids are connected to my mobile and I can make volume adjustment via the Oticon ON app. I know that even as my hearing gets worse as I grow older, wearing hearing aids every day will help me regain my confidence in my daily work and social interactions.
