HEARING AND COGNITIVE HEALTH

The average age of the Quebec population is rising rapidly, and cognitive troubles due to aging are an increasingly significant cause of disability. These cognitive troubles can have a negative impact on memory, judgment, attention, learning and problem solving. In turn, the ability to remain autonomous and enjoy a good quality of life also suffer.

 

Did you know hearing loss has a direct link with cognitive health?

Since hearing loss is the third most common chronic health problem among seniors, it is vital to keep an eye out for symptoms. An emerging hearing problem can make communication difficult and result in social withdrawal, which can lead to isolation, loneliness and effects on the person’s cognitive, physical and mental health. What’s more, studies have noted that hearing loss can be a predictive factor of cognitive decline in elderly patients.

To prevent cognitive decline, make an appointment with an audioprosthetist as soon as you notice signs of hearing loss.

Greater risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s disease

There is a link between hearing loss and disorders that affect the cognitive system in older people. Research has shown that cognitive disorders occur much more often in seniors who have hearing problems.

  • Cognitive degeneration is 30 to 40% greater in people with hearing loss than in those with normal hearing.
  • Dementia can also be accelerated by untreated hearing loss.
  • Starting at age 75, the risk of developing a degenerative illness like Alzheimer’s disease is 2.5 times greater in people with hearing loss.

This is why it is recommended to test the hearing of older people who are showing early signs of Alzheimer’s or other cognitive disorders.

Taking care of your hearing health will help you age well and live well!

Hearing well changes everything!
