Reducing the Risk of Cognitive Decline
The Link Between Hearing Loss & Increased Risk for Developing Dementia
Individuals with hearing loss are at an increased risk for developing cognitive decline and dementia. New research finds treating hearing loss is the single most modifiable risk factor for reducing the risk of dementia. While your risk increases with the degree of hearing loss, it is important to note that even mild hearing loss can increase your risk by as much as 200%! If you or a loved one struggles to hear clearly, I can help. Learn more about how you can reduce your risk of developing dementia in The Villages, FL.
Schedule an Appointment if You Struggle With Any of the Following:
