Your Hearing and Health

Hearing loss impacts all aspects of your life. It plays an important role in your emotional well-being, physical health and overall quality of life. Statistics show that 1 in 6 people have hearing loss yet 80% will choose to simply ignore their hearing loss.

Hearing Loss Is Linked To Other Medical Conditions

Cardiovascular Disease
Risk of Falls
Kidney Disease
Cognitive Decline

Recent studies have shown that untreated hearing loss can put a person at a higher risk for cognitive decline. The greater the hearing loss, the higher the risk.

Actively using hearing aids may reduce the risk and prevent Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
