Hearing aids slow dementia by ‘75%’, new study finds

According to a new study from UK,  wearing hearing aids slow dementia by up to 75%.

Hearing aids placed on ears

Scientists believe that keeping older adults engaged and active by adopting these devices can significantly reduce age-related cognitive decline.

They followed the progress of 2,040 individuals between 1996 and 2014, asking them to complete word memory tests at various stages and monitoring the rate of decline before and after getting a hearing aid.

The research team found that while the aids did not halt or reverse cognitive decline, they slowed it down by three-quarters.

The team at the University of Manchester said the strength of the association between hearing aids and mental deterioration meant policy makers should consider hearing and sight loss screening for all older adults.

Dr Piers Dawes said: “These studies underline just how important it is to overcome the barriers which deny people from accessing hearing and visual aids.

“It’s not really certain why hearing problems have an impact on cognitive decline, but I’d guess that isolation, stigma and the resultant lack of physical activity that are linked to hearing problems might have something to do with it.

“And there are barriers to overcome – people might not want to wear hearing aids because of stigma attached to wearing them, or they feel the amplification is not good enough or they’re not comfortable.”

The new research was published in PLOS ONE and the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

Hearing Aids vs. Cochlea Implants

Hearing devices differs from hearing implants in the way they work.

Hearing aids receive and amplify sounds to a volume which allow the wearer to hear.

Hearing implant and sound processor

Hearing implants require surgery and are inserted under the skin behind the ear, with additional audio processors worn outside. This processor picks up sounds from the environment and convert them into digital information for the implant. Implant then sends electrical signals to the inner ear (cochlea), stimulating the nerve fibers which in turn send information to the brain.

In general,

  1. Hearing aids are recommended for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss, or when the patient has conductive hearing loss- where sounds cannot be transmitted through the ear canal effectively.
  2. Implants are recommended for those with severe to profound loss, or when hearing aids are no longer sufficient for the patient.

There are an estimated of 300 to 400 hearing implant users in Singapore, hearing aids users in the tens of thousands.

Tips on Enjoying Holidays With Hearing Loss

amazing hearing aids

Christmas, New year and Chinese New year!- yes, the holidays! But while many people associate this time with an elevated sense of togetherness and belonging, for those with hearing loss, this time can be marked by feelings of desolation and distress.

There are several ways you can alleviate them. Here is how to make the most of your holiday celebrations with hearing loss

  1. Remind your friends and family about your hearing loss, so they can properly accommodate your needs. Don’t be shy about voicing the things you need to enjoy the holidays with your loved ones! It’s okay to request a spot at the table that’s farthest away from the commotion that could occur in the living room.
  2. Keep the volume down, if possible. TV programs, music, playful children — holiday gatherings can be especially noisy! Turning music or televisions down or off completely while enjoying a meal tends to encourage people to speak louder around the table. That means you’ll be able to hear and focus better on one-on-one conversations.
  3. Embrace the season with friends and family. Group settings can be intimidating when you have hearing loss. But avoiding them can make everything much more difficult. Isolation and loneliness are associated with depression — as is hearing loss. Get together with friends, singing songs, making jokes and playing games can help you connect with your loved ones and bring back that contagious cheer of the holiday season.
  4. Go easy on yourself. Situations with many people conversing at once can be challenging for anyone, even those without hearing loss. Try to laugh a little, and be grateful for the wonderful people around you.

Being around loved ones while indulging in great food and laughter are some of the most meaningful parts of the holiday season. But before the celebrations, visit us to ensure your  hearing aids are ready to go. Talk to us now and see what we can help!
