Hearing Loss: Injuries connected to Falls among the Elderly are Physically, Mentally, and Financially Harmful.
Hearing loss has been proven to increase the risks of falls. Hearing loss takes a toll on how much energy the brain uses. As a result, the cognitive overload of information that the brain attempts to interpret impacts the ability to pay attention to other people or things for an extensive period of time. The inability to pay attention can easily lead to fatigue, confusion, and falls - which can lead to hospitalizations or death.
If you are an older adult or care for someone who is elderly, you are well aware of how frightening and common falls are.
For anyone who experiences hearing loss, wearing hearing aids can reduce the risk of falling.
Not only are falls dangerous and have costly treatment, but they can take away your life of independence and cause worry among your loved ones who care for you.
Reduce your risks of falls and become more independent with the use of hearing aids. Contact us at Pure Sound Hearing for a complimentary hearing test and consultation.
