There has been a lot in the media regarding cognitive decline and isolation. I actually have been counseling patients about this issue for over two years now!
Why? Because hearing loss, just like social distancing, causes isolation. When your brain continues to pour all of its energy into processing speech information due to untreated hearing loss, it doesn’t allow your brain to focus as much energy on cognitive functions. Therefore, this area will actually start to atrophy and get “lazy” when it comes to performing those cognitive functions because it doesn’t do it as much as it used to.
