Hearing loss linked to dementia
Clarity Hearing Clinic’s Audiologist, Ms Fernandez says that ‘ When people have hearing loss, they may start to withdraw from activities they used to enjoy, because certain scenarios may tire them out, or become embarrassing or difficult”. Now research is finding that hearing loss could have a worrying knock-on effect as evidence is emerging that deafness may lead to dementia. Research by the John Hopkins School of Medicine showed a strong association between hearing loss and the earlier onset and more serious degrees of dementia. Not being able to hear well could be a recipe for disaster. Improve your hearing today – Call Clarity Hearing Clinic now on 9474 6644 to book your free hearing check and hearing aid trial.
