Sounds help to stimulate our brain. Untreated hearing loss is thus associated with a greater risk of dementia.
Using hearing aids helps reduce mental decline
While no hearing aids can cure dementia or restore hearing, they do go a long way in helping to keep your brain fit. When you wear hearing aids you will find it easier to communicate and participate in social activities. This stimulates your brain and helps decrease the risk of accelerated mental decline related to untreated hearing loss.
Hearing is Central to your Health and Quality of Life
