The Impact of Hearing Loss on Dementia and Healthy Aging

Nicholas S. Reed, AuD, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Recent studies have shown the relationship between hearing loss and several other health- related issues such as cognitive decline (dementia) and increased hospitalizations. Based on the results of these studies, Dr. Reed will discuss how hearing loss clinically impacts the everyday health and functioning of older adults and how hearing devices and communication strategies can help.
