Reduce Your Dementia Risk in Lewiston & Rumford, ME
Take Preventative Steps To Keep Your Mind Sharp
Did you know that people with hearing loss are at an increased risk for developing cognitive decline and dementia? New research finds treating hearing loss is the single most modifiable way to reduce your risk of dementia. While your risk increases with the degree of hearing loss, it is important to note that even mild hearing loss can increase your risk by as much as 200%! If you or a loved one struggle to hear clearly, our audiologists offer effective treatment to help reduce your dementia risk in Lewiston and Rumford, ME.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Is it difficult to hear a conversation when there is background noise such as when you’re in a restaurant?
- Are others asking you to turn down the TV or radio frequently?
- Do you have trouble following a conversation in the car?
- Do you find yourself guessing at words often, sometimes incorrectly?
- Are you uncomfortable in social situations because you are worried about hearing?
- Do you ask others to repeat themselves often, more loudly or slowly?
- Is most of what you hear muffled and difficult to make out, even though it is loud enough?
- Do you rely on reading lips or situational context to follow a conversation?
- Have multiple family members or friends approached you about your hearing?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may have a hearing loss and a hearing evaluation is recommended. Whether you suffer from slight or significant hearing loss, your cognitive abilities may be adversely affected.
