If you have hearing loss, wearing a hearing aid can help reduce the risks of dementia that are associated with poor communication and isolation.
Hearing loss that goes untreated can raise the risk of dementia by nearly 50%.
Studies have suggested that for people with hearing loss, treating hearing loss could significantly reduce the likelihood of potential cognitive problems. A recent study from the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that those with hearing loss, who then received hearing aids within three years of the diagnosis had reduced rates of dementia than individuals without hearing aids.
Another study from that same journal showed that hearing aids lowered the risk of cognitive decline that is linked to hearing loss.
