EMBRACING CHANGE PRESENTS:
Hearing Loss and its Effect on the Brain,
Cognitive Function and Social Relationships
Are you the one saying “What” lately ?
Chronic hearing impairment becomes very common as one ages. The National Institute on Aging reports that one in three adults aged 65-74 has hearing loss and nearly half of those 75+ have difficulty hearing, but it is often under-recognized and inadequately addressed.
Hearing loss can negatively affect your brain’s auditory cortex. Cognitive abilities (memory and thinking) may decline faster in people with hearing loss. It is easier and better for the brain if you try to correct hearing loss sooner rather than later.
Learn about the many ways hearing loss can be corrected through hearing aids, other amplification options, and better communication techniques.
Join us to hear Professor Meg Wallhagen, PhD of UCSF to learn about hearing loss, its effect on the brain, cognitive functioning, and social relationships.
