Treating hearing loss can help.

If you let mild, moderate or severe hearing loss go untreated, research shows you're more likely to develop dementia. Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.  Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia.  Treating hearing loss with hearing aids has been shown to help with dementia. Call us, or fill out the contact us form to schedule an appointment today!
