Dementia and Hearing Loss

A recent study by Frank Lin, an otologist and assistant professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, has linked as little as mild hearing loss to memory and thinking problems.  Dr. Lin’s study reinforces that hearing loss can affect more than just hearing, there are social, physical, psychological and cognitive implications.  It is so important  to talk to your health professionals about hearing loss and see your  local audiologist on a regular basis to have your hearing evaluated.  Stop in and see us today for an evaluation and to learn about how hearing loss may affect you  and your family.
