After age 50, regular hearing screenings are an important part of health care.
Another study has come out linking hearing loss to mental decline.
A study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry on April 25, 2016 has shown that adults age 80-99 with hearing loss were more likely to have dementia than adults age 80-99 with hearing loss who wore hearing aids.
The results of the study suggest that wearing hearing aids is a simple important way to preserve brain health. This study reinforces the importance of early intervention for hearing loss and good healthcare includes hearing screenings.
