Learn More About Reducing Your Risk of Dementia with Our Worcester Hearing Aid Clinic

Keep Your Mind Sharp with Our 5-Star-Rated Hearing Restoration Treatment

When you visit our Worcester hearing aid clinic, we will work with you to restore your hearing to improve your daily enjoyment of life AND to help you manage the psychological effects caused by hearing loss. Today, one in twelve Americans suffers from hearing loss, with over two thirds of Americans over the age of 70 struggling to hear. Because the way we hear is interconnected with brain function, dementia affecting older Americans can be frequently linked to the deterioration of hearing ability.

How Are Hearing Loss & Dementia Connected?

Dr. Frank Lin and his research team at Johns Hopkins Medical Center have published numerous studies on the impact of hearing loss, including its strong link to cognitive decline and dementia. Their research highlights three primary effects of hearing loss that can contribute directly to an increased risk of dementia.

#1 – Social Isolation

worcester hearing aid clinic - reduce risk of dementiaWithdrawal from social situations is common in individuals with hearing loss. If you struggle with any of the following, even to a mild degree, you are not alone:

  • Feelings of embarrassment
  • Fear of making mistakes during a conversation
  • Feeling left out of a group conversation

Proper hearing health care can enable you to maintain an active, engaged lifestyle. In turn, social interactions help to keep your mind sharp. Keeping your brain mentally fit – with social interactions, communication, reading, and playing games – is a recipe for a long, healthy life!

#2 – Cerebral Atrophy

cerebral atrophy dementia worcester maMultiple scientific studies have demonstrated that hearing impairment is associated with accelerated brain atrophy in both the overall brain, as well as advanced reductions in volume associated with the memory, hearing, speech and language portions of the brain.

Cerebral atrophy is a hallmark feature of individuals with dementia. A decrease in brain volume is essentially the result of losing millions of neurons. As the auditory system ages, we lose sensory cells in our ears. Each of those cells has the potential to make connections with millions of cells throughout the brain in areas involved with hearing, speech, memory, and beyond. Therefore, losing your hearing with aging can affect much more than your ears!

#3 – Cognitive Overload (i.e., Working Your Brain Too Hard)

worcester hearing aid clinic - decrease cognitive overloadHearing loss is not normal, and neither is the excess strain that it puts on your brain. With hearing loss, your brain is constantly on overload as it works to fill in the missing pieces and follow the conversation. Imagine trying to read this page if every third word were missing. Now imagine reading a 300-page novel written like that! The extra time it takes for you to follow a conversation adds up over time, and eventually can end up harming your brain.
