What is

Hearing Loss?

Hearing loss is the inability to clearly hear sounds in one or both ears. Hearing loss is incredibly common, affecting 48 million Americans. Degrees of hearing loss range from mild, moderate, moderately severe, to profound. 

When left untreated, hearing loss can affect your speech comprehension, cognition, and social relationships. It’s important to have your hearing checked on a regular basis if you are over the age of 60, or if you have any noticed any signs of hearing impairment.

Signs of Hearing Loss

Sensorineural hearing loss, the most common type of loss, often occurs gradually, over the course of a few years. For this reason, it can be difficult to recognize the signs right away as you have become accustomed to not hearing certain sounds. Some common indicators of hearing loss include:

Hearing and Cognition

Your hearing plays an integral role in cognitive health. Your brain relies on your hearing to bring in new sounds to process as information. When left untreated, hearing loss makes it harder for the brain to hear and process sounds, resulting in listening fatigue, forgetfulness, and cognitive decline.

Hearing aids are a great way to reduce the risk of cognitive decline because they provide the brain the with sounds and stimulation it needs to stay healthy.

Tips for Better Communication

Better hearing requires more than just hearing aids. It’s important that your family and close friends help you by following these communication tips!
