The Benefits of Treating Hearing Loss

More than 35 million Americans suffer from hearing loss.  5 out of 6 people have yet to do anything about their hearing loss.    The benefits of treating a hearing loss include the following:

Increased Income

A study of more than 40,000 households demonstrated that hearing loss has a deleterious impact on earnings and unemployment rates. 

Happiness

Research shows that hearing loss is associated with an increased risk of depression in adults of all ages, but is most pronounced in 18 to 69 year olds. (https://ow.ly/vvZEz) (https://ow.ly/vWv7m)

Decreased Risk of Dementia

Research not only shows a connection between hearing loss and dementia, but a Johns Hopkins study of older adults found that hearing loss actually accelerates brain function decline. Some experts believe that interventions, like hearing aids, could potentially delay or prevent dementia. Research is ongoing. (https://ow.ly/vWvgs)

 

Decreased Risk of Falls

A Johns Hopkins study showed that people in middle age (40 to 69) with even just mild hearing loss were nearly three times more likely to have a history of falling. (https://ow.ly/vwchC)

Decreased Risk of Hospitalization

Another Johns Hopkins study showed that hospitalization is more likely for older adults with hearing loss. (https://ow.ly/vwbZe)

Longer Lifespan

A groundbreaking study found that men with hearing loss had an increased risk of mortality, but hearing aids made a difference. Men and women with hearing loss who used hearing aids—although older and with more severe hearing loss—had a significantly lower mortality risk than those with hearing loss who did not use hearing aids.
