Dementia and Hearing Loss

Hearing Aid

For many years now, researchers have been talking about the link between hearing loss and dementia. The Canadian Alzheimer’s Society states that those with hearing loss show a greater cognitive decline and have a greater chance of cognitive impairment. When people with hearing loss receive early intervention the chance of developing cognitive impairment may be decreased.  This is one of the reasons why Davidson Hearing Aid Centres provides hearing tests to the community at no charge. We believe that everyone’s mental heath is important and we feel that hearing health care professionals are obligated to provide opportunity for early diagnosis to everyone.
