What is wellness?
Wellness is a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But plainly put, we at REM Audiology believe that wellness is a state of mind. It’s a goal for living healthy, feeling healthy, and thinking healthy. Wellness is an unbiased attitude towards new science and studies, and it’s a willingness to ask a lot of questions, take care of yourself, and look to enjoying your and your family’s future.
Why is Wellness important to REM Audiology?
Wellness is something everyone at REM takes very seriously. We encourage our patients to know as much as they can before, during, and after our tests. We want to know of any questions or concerns they have. The more they know, the more we can plan an effective path to treatment.
Apart from our in office visits, REM simply wants to get into the wellness mindset. Healthy living is important, and healthy living is something we feel we can effectively promote.
As far as topics go, we’ll naturally gravitate towards subjects like hearing loss and hearing loss prevention. Topics such as: Keeping Mentally Fit by Treating Hearing Loss or Can Safe Headphone Use Prevent Noise-Induced Hearing Loss?
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We also want to promote and talk about topics like (to link an apt article): Body’s Clock Never Adjusts to Daylight Savings Time.
What is the REM Wellness Program?
We started our Wellness Program, a program for our patients 55 years or older, a few months back. Eligible patients automatically receive a free hearing screening and a complimentary sample of Eargene (ear ointment for itchy ears).
In the future, our Wellness members will also receive special offers and promotions, in addition to a dedicated Wellness newsletter.
For every 250 people enrolled, REM donates $100.00 to the Robert P. Ahrens Memorial Fund. Via the New Jersey Association of Hearing Health Professions: “The Ahrens Memorial Fund was created for the purpose of awarding scholarships and hearing instruments to worthy children within the State of New Jersey who might otherwise go without it…”
What can you do?
Wellness is for everyone, and everyone can help spread the word, so if there is anybody you know over the age of 55 that needs a hearing test, send them our way. It’s free for them, and hopefully the end result has everyone living a little bit healthier.
In addition to that, send us all the health news you can muster! Email us at [email protected] or post right on our Facebook wall. We love hearing from our patients.
