The connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline
There are very clear links between hearing loss and cognitive decline. Hearing loss also increases your likelihood of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s. Scientists are still not sure about how this connection works but a large number of studies support this conclusion.
Cognitive decline is where a person’s memory and thinking skills deteriorate. A certain degree of brain shrinkage appears to be a normal part of the aging process but there are a range of conditions and lifestyle choices that may contribute to cognitive decline.

Hearing Aids For Children
Oftentimes the parents or teachers at school may notice that the child is not responding when called to, is not articulating certain speech sounds properly, or has a language development delay. In these cases a hearing test can clarify whether the hearing loss is impacting their ability to hear speech.
House of Hearing has experience and knowledge in prescribing, fitting and providing follow-up care for children in need of hearing amplification.
