Alzheimer’s and Hearing Loss.j

According to a study attributed to the Alzheimer’s Association (AA), in conjunction with the Better Hearing Institute (BHI), there is strong evidence to suggest that hearing impairment contributes to the progression of mental impairment in older adults.

Hearing Devices and Alzheimer’s

The BHI’s research has uncovered that people with Alzheimer’s who regularly wear hearing devices in combination with a consistently practiced aural retraining therapy program – which includes, but is not limited to: hearing device retraining, speech reading, and various listening strategies – are able to diminish the wide range of Alzheimer’s symptoms.

If you are concerned you or a loved one might be experiencing the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s, it is recommended that you maintain your regular hearing tests.
