Why 22 million Americans delay trying a
hearing device to solve their hearing problem
Inadequate Information. Most people lose hearing
gradually and may not realize they have significant
loss. Your family and friends adapt by speaking to you
more loudly and clearly.

The links between
hearing loss and
dementia

alertness and personal safety, reduced job performance
and earning power and diminished overall health.

Seniors who have untreated hearing loss may be at
an increased risk for developing dementia, a loss
of brain function that can affect memory, thinking,
language, judgment and behavior. This is the
finding of a study conducted by researchers from
the Division of Otology at Johns Hopkins
University School of Medicine.

Cost. Your hearing solution will be based on
your type of loss and lifestyle. Many
factor’s go into your hearing aid
purchase and will affect the
price. Which type and style is
best for you? What features do
you need? What’s included in
the price? (Warranty, 30-day
trial period, Free cleaning
and adjustments). Your
hearing health care provider
should present to you clear
and easily understood pricing
options as well as financing
options. Be sure to freely ask
any questions that will help
you make an informed
decision.

Stigma and Cosmetics. Some people
reject hearing aids because they are
concerned of what other’s will think.
This does not need to be a barrier
to improving your hearing. With
advances in technology your hearing
solution can be nearly invisible to
others. Once your quality of life is
improved, cosmetics will be of less
concern to you.
Not Realizing the Importance
of Hearing Another reason for
rejection of hearing aids is that
people have forgotten how important
hearing is to their quality of life.
However, untreated hearing loss
can lead to anxiety, stress,
fatigue, withdrawal from
family and friends,
impaired memory,
reduced

The study included 639 people whose hearing
and cognitive abilities were tested over a period
of time, starting in 1990 and concluding in
2008. Researchers found that study participants
who had hearing loss at the beginning of the
study were significantly more likely to develop
dementia by the end of the study. How might
hearing loss and dementia be connected?
Investigators aren’t sure, but they think a common
pathology may underlie both conditions, or
possibly the strain of decoding sounds over the
years may overwhelm the brains of people with
hearing loss, leaving them more vulnerable to
dementia.
The article concludes that, whatever the cause,
these findings may offer a starting point for
further research as to whether interventions, even
as simple as hearing aids, could delay or prevent
dementia by improving patients’ hearing.
