It feels like a double whammy. As we age, we are likely
to experience some degree of hearing loss. And now,
we are learning that hearing loss may be a factor in
the risk of developing cognitive issues, even dementia.
Since communication difficulties are one of the earliest signs of dementia, audiologists are poised to make timely and appropriate referrals when necessary, which can improve long-term outcomes by allowing earlier diagnosis and management of cognitive decline.
Avid shooters, hunters, and sportsmen and women know that getting outside is one of the best ways to relieve stress. But, when it comes to your ears, these activities are anything but peaceful. In fact, they are one of the top ways to wreak havoc on your hearing.
