Hearing Loss & Dementia Risk

Individuals with hearing loss are at an increased risk for developing cognitive decline and dementia. In fact, current studies find that treating hearing loss is the single most modifiable risk factor for reducing the risk of dementia.

While your risk for dementia 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, our experts can help reduce your risk of hearing loss and dementia.
