Memory, Cognition, & Hearing Loss

Research shows there is a direct link between untreated hearing loss and cognitive decline.


  • People with moderate to severe hearing loss are up to 5 times as likely to develop dementia compared to people with normal hearing.

  • People with untreated hearing loss report more problems with their memory compared to those with normal hearing.

  • Older adults with hearing loss – especially men – are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.

If you have hearing loss, the best way to keep your brain active and healthy is

by wearing hearing aids as prescribed.
