Nurture your brain health with hearing aids

What is healthy aging?

Did you know that when it comes to hearing, the brain and the ears are equal partners? Hearing well supports your brain health and is a key factor for healthy aging.

It’s easy to assume that thinking or memory is entirely about your brain, but recent studies have shown that treating hearing loss early can help you maintain your cognitive health.

Your ears pick up the sound, and they partner with your brain to give meaning to what you hear. If you improve the quality of the sound, you increase your ability to understand.

A new study out of Johns Hopkins University looked at the question of whether comprehensive hearing care, including hearing aid fittings, helps to slow down cognitive decline in older adults and the results were truly remarkable.

By treating hearing loss in older adults who had more risk factors for cognitive decline, the loss of thinking and memory abilities was slowed down by almost 50% over 3 years. 1
This shows the connection between hearing care and brain health, and how treating hearing loss can have a positive impact on brain health and can preserve thinking abilities. This can help you continue living your life to the fullest, engaging in activities that bring you joy.

If you are noticing hearing difficulties, it’s never been more important to take control of your hearing health, especially when there are options to help. Hearing care is vital to healthy aging and by tackling hearing loss you can improve not only your ability to hear, but also nurture your brain health. 3

Take control of your health and help your brain by helping your ears. Call us on 905-549-2481 to start your journey to better hearing health and get back to living your life to it’s fullest.
