New Study Links Hearing Loss With Dementia in Older Adults

This study, published by Johns Hopkins University, found a strong association between hearing loss and dementia in older adults.

They found that older adults with greater severity of hearing loss were more likely to have dementia.

However, the study also found that using hearing aids was associated with a lower risk of dementia.

The researchers suggest that this may be because hearing aids help improve communication and social engagement, which can help protect the brain from cognitive decline. The study adds to the growing evidence that suggests a link between hearing loss and dementia, and highlights the importance of addressing hearing loss in older adults.
