A report published by the Lancet Commission shows that hearing loss is the largest modifiable risk factor against dementia. In fact, moderate hearing impairment can increase one’s dementia risk 3-fold.1,8
Hearing loss is connected to lowered mental stimulation, social isolation, and, ultimately, cognitive decline. Fortunately, hearing aids have been shown to protect against cognitive decline by keeping the brain actively engaged in everyday life.
How hearing aids can reduce your dementia risk
Hearing aids support your brain by helping you process sound so that you can keep your brain mentally stimulated.
When you have hearing loss, it takes extra effort to keep up with conversations. This can lead you to avoid social situations. Hearing aids help to keep you connected to the world around you so that you can confidently participate in social gatherings and activities.
HearingLife hearing professionals recommend hearing aids to those with hearing loss as a means of maintaining an active lifestyle - thereby preventing one’s risk for developing dementia.
