Hearing is a crucial part of how we communicate and enjoy the world. When you can’t hear, you miss out on sounds that can improve your quality of life, such as the voices of grandchildren. Our hearing is also connected to our overall wellbeing. When you can’t hear, your brain doesn’t receive the proper stimulation it needs to remain healthy and active. Once your brain stops hearing certain sounds, it also stops processing those sounds, resulting in a lack of memory and overall decline in cognitive function. It is important to treat any hearing loss with hearing aids so you can continue to hear your best and to keep your brain healthy. Research has proven that those with hearing loss have a greater chance of dementia opposed to those without hearing loss. In order to keep your brain active and healthy it is important to treat your hearing loss and to have a hearing exam right away if you suspect you may have trouble hearing.
