Treating Hearing Loss is URGENT! Learn how we can HELP!
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING THESE SYMPTOMS?
1. Do you have trouble understanding conversations, or ask people to repeat themselves?
2. Do you feel more forgetful than you used to and would like to know the difference between normal aging and dementia?
3. Do you have difficulty processing rapid speech?
4. Do you experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears)?
DO YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT HEARING LOSS & DEMENTIA?
1. Hearing loss is the 3rd most common health problem in the US, possibly leading to dementia, isolation & withdrawal from daily activities.
2. People with untreated hearing loss are 2-5 times more likely to develop dementia.*
3. Research supports early hearing care intervention for reduced risk of cognitive decline and better overall health.
4. People with hearing loss wait an average of 7 years before seeking help.
If you have been putting off seeking a hearing solution, take some action today. Please join us as we explore the connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline and discuss ways to treat and slow down this process.
