Hearing Loss and Cognitive Decline/Dementia

Predicted to nearly double in prevalence every 20 years, dementia is a general term for cognitive decline that’s severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is one of this condition’s greatest side effects, which is why Alzheimer’s is the most common type of dementia.

Two-thirds of Americans over age 70 have age-related hearing loss. What’s more, hearing loss has been strongly associated with cognitive decline in older Americans. But there is good news: early research suggests that using hearing aids can delay the onset of dementia.
