Hearing Aids Assisting Older Adults

One of the most common ailments that arises with ageing is the loss of hearing. Studies and researches have proved that ageing plays a significant role in hearing impairment and cognitive function. This was assessed by measuring audiometric results of older adults. WHO estimates 1/3rd of older adults over the age of 65 and 2/3rd above 70 years suffer from hearing loss. A declined cognitive function and worsening communication skills are some of the adverse effects that loss of hearing poses on older adults.

Age related hearing loss can occur due to multiple reasons

Presbycusis is the name given to age related hearing loss. It happens either due to a family history or because of some damage in the inner ear or auditory nerve. It makes a person less tolerant of loud noise.  Even though this type of hearing loss is gradual, it generally effects both the ears. With the advancement of technology, hearing aids like Signia hearing aids and Phonak hearing aids come in very handy to older adults with hearing impairments.
