Older adults with newly diagnosed hearing loss who start using a hearing aid have a lower risk of being diagnosed with dementia (about 18% lower), diagnosed for depression or anxiety (about 11% lower), and experiencing falls (about 13% lower) over the three years following receipt of the hearing aid. However, just 12% of those who have a diagnosis of hearing loss actually obtain the devices, even when the devices are at least partially covered under their insurance. These findings were reported in “Can Hearing Aids Delay Time to Diagnosis of Dementia, Depression, or Falls in Older Adults?” by Elham Mahmoudi . . .
