Hearing loss

One of the most common health issues in the world is also one of the most treatable. Hearing loss has potential impacts on all aspects of your life. Hearing plays a major role in our quality of life, from our emotional well-being and physical health to our careers and leisure activities.

Yet many of us who have hearing loss let it go untreated, despite research showing links between untreated hearing loss and increased risk of falls, depression, anxiety, hospitalizations and even dementia. Men are more likely to experience hearing loss as compared to women.

Hearing loss impacts our emotional well-being

When we hear our best, there’s nothing stopping us from enjoying the sounds of laughter, music, nature or conversations with family and friends. Hearing these sounds help fuel us, and undeniably make moments more memorable and life more enjoyable.

When hearing is impaired, those sounds we’ve taken for granted fade — leading to a cascade of changes that could impact us emotionally.

  • Hearing loss might cause embarrassment
  • Missing favorite sounds might lead to sadness
  • Missing critical information could create anxiety
  • Not hearing conversations clearly might lead to feeling left out
  • And feeling left out can lead to depression and social isolation

Hearing loss impacts our physical and mental health

Hearing loss also plays a significant role in our physical and mental well-being — with a growing body of research linking hearing loss to dementia and cognitive decline. When we hear our best, it’s easy to stay engaged and alert and active.

When hearing is impaired, our sense of space shrinks, warning cues get missed, and we withdraw from social activities or situations. This leaves our physical and mental health vulnerable.

  • Adults with hearing loss are up to 5 times more likely to develop dementia1
  • Hearing loss is linked to a three-fold risk of falling
  • Accidental injuries are up to 50 percent more likely for people with hearing loss3
