Helping Reduce The Risk of Cognitive Decline
Hearing loss is normal. Age does not mean you have to give up because you have nothing to do – you have the possibility, the opportunity, to improve your quality of life, and it’s never too late to act, although the sooner the better.
The benefits of Hearing aids in the long-term is not only about hearing better, it’s also about how your mental health develops.
Following a study, Professor Hélène Ameiva of the University of Bordeaux explains how hearing impairment is associated with accelerated cognitive decline. Talking about how those with a hearing loss who use hearing aids have the same cognitive decline as those without a hearing loss – only those with a hearing loss who do not use hearing aids experience this accelerated cognitive decline.
Cognition is the way our brain treats information, including the ability to remember and the ability to focus attention on relevant information of our environment including language. Hearing aids help to restore our communication abilities, allowing us to improve quality of life and help change the stereotypes of ageing and hearing loss.
