Five ways hearing aids can help you live longer

  Posted February 5, 2019

  1. Hearing aids can improve your balance

Wearing hearing aids helps you hear better, which frees up your brain’s resources to deal with other issues, such as walking and maintaining your balance.  You don’t even think about how to balance anymore, you just do it. But did you realise hearing loss could impact your brain’s ability to concentrate on this important function?

2. Hearing aids can speed up your response during an emergency

Wearing hearing aids can help you hear better in emergency situations and give you the information you need to make a quick decision and react accordingly. From emergency vehicle and fire engine sirens to household smoke alarms, there are a variety of sounds in our daily environment designed to alert us. Having the ability to hear these signals can mean the difference between life and death; however, those with hearing loss often have trouble hearing the high frequency.

3. Hearing aids can reduce the risk of depression

Wearing hearing aids can lessen your risk for developing feelings of sadness, especially among older adults with severe hearing loss who are at greater risk for developing depression and anxiety than those who hear normally.

4. Hearing aids can reduce your social isolation

Hearing aids help you communicate with your friends and loved ones, allow you to remain a part of the conversation and re-engage in life.

5. Hearing aids can reduce the risk of dementia

Wearing hearing aids may lessen your risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia diseases. Left untreated, mild to moderate hearing loss likely contributes to cognitive decline and may be an early indicator of Alzheimer’s disease. Treating hearing loss can also help individuals with early stages of dementia communicate more fully with family members and other caregivers.
