Active Aging and Better Hearing (Lecture) @ Center for Hearing Health
Sep 25 @ 10:00 am

Hearing loss is one of the most common conditions affecting older adults. The National Institute on Aging reports that one in three adults between 65-74  years has hearing loss, and nearly half of those over 75 years have difficulty with hearing. Many causes lead to age-related hearing loss (presbycusis).  Most commonly, it arises from changes in the inner ear, but it can also result from changes in the middle ear, or from complex changes along the nerve pathways from the ear to the brain. As age-related hearing loss is often gradual, you may not realize that you’ve lost some of your ability to hear.

Noise induced hearing loss is caused by long-term noise exposure and is often associated with employment at construction sites, in the military service, or as musician.  Temporary tinnitus can be a warning sign.

Hearing loss can also be caused by infections, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors, medications or impacted earwax.

A new study led by investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital adds to a growing body of evidence that hearing loss is associated with higher risk of cognitive decline. These findings suggest that hearing loss may help identify individuals at greater risk.

We can help you treat your hearing loss, through hearing aids, other amplification options, and better communication techniques. Center for Hearing Health also provides social support through events, exhibitions, and monthly support groups.

Support groups can have a huge benefit in helping you cope with hearing loss.  You can connect with others who have hearing loss, and share experiences, trade tips, and perhaps even get involved in shaping the future of hearing technology.
