Hearing Loss can lead to a feeling of isolation, loneliness and depression. It can also increase the risk of Dementia by up to 5 times.
However, wearing a hearing aid can help to significantly reduce these risks. Many more people with Hearing Loss could benefit from having a hearing aid fitted.
Research suggests that people wait on average 10 years before they seek help for their Hearing Loss. Action On Hearing Loss is a leading UK charity supporting people with Hearing Loss, Deafness and Tinnitus. Their website has lots of useful information including community support and useful products and services that are available. You can find them here.
