How Hearing Health Can Help Prevent Dementia
According to the World Health Organization, dementia affects 50 million people worldwide and 10 million more each year. Recent research suggests that hearing loss may be one of the most significant and modifiable risk factors for cognitive decline–and that hearing aids can delay or prevent its onset. Considering that the rate of hearing loss due simply to aging approaches 30% for adults over the age of 65, a timely hearing evaluation can be a literal lifesaver. The earlier hearing loss is discovered and treated, the more likely one is to stay active physically, socially, and cognitively, and for longer. Make hearing evaluations for you and your loved ones a resolution in the upcoming year–and every year after that!
