Communication is so important in every aspect of our lives. If we are unable to communicate effectively or explain ourselves properly, there is always the chance of misinterpretation and misunderstandings.
It doesn’t matter if it’s at work or in our home life, only the outcomes change. At work, especially in the forces, it could be a matter of life or death. At home, whilst physical harm is not likely the emotional stress of not being able to communicate still causes upset and frustration.
This is basically what we are talking about. Our ability to communicate basically depends on these two skills. If your hearing was damaged in any way during your service and it now affects your ability to hear, and therefore listen. We here at Veterans Hearing Support can help you with your hearing.
This can affect you in so many ways from watching TV, holding a simple conversation or being able to follow instructions.
