Isolation/Depression Can Stem from Hearing Difficulties

As a person’s degree of hearing loss increases, so does the likelihood that they’ll experience feelings of isolation. According to research, this is especially true for older Americans.

Furthermore, women are 70% more likely than men to experience depression in their lifetime. Research also shows that severe depression is more prevalent among people with hearing loss, especially women. However, over 40% of women with hearing loss do not own hearing aids, even though using them is often a simple and effective way to feel more connected to the world.
