Hearing Loss Can Increase Your Dementia Risk by 200-500%

Neglecting hearing loss could increase your chances of dementia. Understanding the adaptive process of the brain is the basis for our advanced treatment that encompasses total auditory rehabilitation and active, engaged living for our patients. As your hearing diminished over time, so did your brain’s ability to adjust to, localize, and focus on the speech sounds you want to hear. An understanding of the brain’s neuroplasticity contributes to our approach to treating hearing loss. Think of this kind of treatment as “physical therapy” for your ears. ​

Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking a few minutes on our website as you explore hearing loss solutions for yourself or a loved one. At Central Maine Audiology we understand the impact that a hearing loss can have on individuals and their families. Untreated hearing loss disrupts work, family relationships and often causes frustration, withdrawal, and isolation. Additionally, research shows that uncorrected hearing loss contributes to many other health problems including dementia, depression, and increased risk of falling.

The good news is that in the vast majority of cases, having hearing loss doesn’t mean you have to miss out on life. Using the latest hearing technology, our expert and caring providers help those suffering from hearing loss restore their quality of life and reconnect to the people and activities they love. Since 2002, thousands of patients in our community have trusted their healthy hearing to our experienced team. But don’t take our word for it. We hope you take a few minutes to hear some of our patients share their stories. We look forward to providing you with the same high-quality, compassionate hearing care.

Ultimately, you should do your research when choosing your audiologists in Lewiston or Rumford, and the surrounding areas. To help you, I wrote, “The Top 10 Things You Must Know Before Choosing Your Audiologist.” Inside this report, you will find the ten most crucial things to know (and what to ask) before you commit to a hearing loss rehabilitation plan.
