Study reveals link between hearing decline & memory loss

A new study has again found a link between declining hearing and memory failing in older adults.

This is a further evidence that if you suffer with developing hearing loss it is essential this is addressed as soon as possible. Too many people delay improving their hearing until it has got quite bad. The ongoing strain of trying to listen has a direct effect on changes in cognitive function and increasing memory loss.

Other changes are known to go on in the brain due to auditory plasticity which is a subject we will visit again soon in the blog.

Our advice is don’t put off to tomorrow what needs to be addressed today.
