We have all been learning to adapt to a changing world with the complications that Coronavirus has brought to us all. Communicating with friends and family has never been so important, ensuring we stay connected.
Having the ability to hear enables us to join in with conversations, clearly hear on the telephone and listen to news via the television or radio and much more. When people have trouble with their hearing, they can feel very isolated and cut off from the conversation. It can be hard to understand what is being said around you when there is a lot of noise in the background, some say demoralising.
Early intervention is better
It is important to take action sooner, rather than later. Over time, the brain can “forget” how to hear certain sounds. This contributes to a feeling of isolation, which is a risk factor in dementia.
Research* suggests that by looking after your health and keeping cognitively, physically, and socially active in midlife and later life, can help protect you against dementia. It was once thought that hearing loss was simply an early symptom of dementia. Now we know it may well contribute to its development.
Wearing a hearing aid, is proven to have the biggest impact over other known health factors such as smoking and obesity in significantly reducing your risk of developing the condition in the first place.
Treating your hearing loss will enable you to continue with good communications.
