Alzheimer's and Hearing Loss

Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and cognitive decline can all be linked to hearing loss.
Hearing loss can be gradual. It can be so gradual that we may not even notice until it's impacting our job, our family, and daily living.
However, this is not all that can be affected. If a hearing loss has not been treated for a period of time you can become more prone to some neurodegenerative diseases and the nerves that control how well you hear also become damaged. This is all because your brain and your nerves are not receiving enough stimuli.

Hearing loss is a risk factor even in people already suffering from conditions such as Alzheimers. Hearing loss can challenge their ability to communicate properly with loved ones and it can make the condition worse because of decreased stimulation. Hearing aids ultimately improve the quality of life of every individual that needs them.
