Age-Related Hearing Loss
Almost one-third of adults over the age of 65 experience disabling hearing loss. It begins at an earlier age but it may not be noticeable at first.
You might find that you have to increase the volume on the TV or radio, have trouble hearing over the phone, difficulty understanding a conversation in a noisy place such as a restaurant and often asking for repetitions.
Age-related hearing loss is known as presbycusis and can be linked to a family-history.
If you think you may have a hearing loss, you should contact an audiologist to have your hearing tested.
Hearing loss can lead to other problems such as depression, isolation and anxiety. Adults over the age of 60 have a 36% risk of Dementia associated with hearing loss.
Actively using hearing aids can reduce the risk of cognitive decline associated with hearing loss.
