Additional Benefits of Hearing Aids

  • Overall Health

    Hearing aids may promote better general health, by reducing self-rated psychosocial hearing difficulties and promoting a more active, engaged lifestyle (Dawes and colleagues, 2015)

  • Social Interactions

    By facilitating improved communication, hearing aids may improve mood and increase social interactions, thereby perhaps impacting scores on cognitive tests (Amieva and colleagues, 2015)

  • Listening Effort

    Patients may feel less exhausted after an hour of socializing- can engage more easily with family and friends.

  • Cognitive Health

    People with dementia put a good deal of effort into communicating, hearing technology could reduce the cognitive effort and resource allocation (studies currently being performed regarding this)
