Hearing loss is a common condition affecting more than 35 million Americans. While most people are familiar with hearing loss, many don’t understand that hearing loss can have long-term effects.
Patients with hearing loss suffer. Hearing loss can cause people to feel disconnected from their surroundings and can lead to withdrawal from people and activities. As humans, we communicate; we need this interaction to stay healthy. People with chronic hearing loss have progressive difficulty communicating with people.
This leads to withdrawal from social interactions and activities. For people with advanced hearing loss, life can become lonely, depressing and frightening. For patients with dementia, this can be catastrophic and can lead to the progression of this disease.
