Why Baby Boomers And Their Loved Ones Should Pay Attention To Hearing Loss

 

 

Hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition impacting people in the United States today. One in every three people 65 years of age and one in every two 75 years of age and over has hearing loss.

This is important because there are surprising health risks directly connected to hearing loss. Research from Johns Hopkins Medicine found walking problems, falls and even dementia are linked to hearing loss. When you live with untreated hearing loss, you are not only putting your health at risk, but you may also be missing out on areas of your life and connecting fully with the ones you love.

Since Americans are living longer, hearing health will continue to be a key part of healthy aging. On average, those who currently wear hearing aids struggled to hear for 10 years prior to seeking treatment for their hearing loss.

That is 10 years of potentially:
- Missing all or parts of precious conversations with a spouse or grandchildren
- Struggling to communicate on the phone
- Missing full appreciation of music 
- Not fully participating in once-loved hobbies and/or social activities

Common signs of hearing loss: 
- Asking people to repeat themselves often
- Difficulty hearing over background noise
- The feeling that people mumble when they speak
- Turning up the volume too loud for others when watching TV
