Wearing hearing aids can reduce risk of cognitive decline

Research by Johns Hopkins and other institutions have linked cognitive decline and even dementia to hearing loss for reasons you can read about here. One study found that older adults with hearing loss experience a 30-40 percent faster decline in cognitive abilities than peers with normal hearing.

But a 25-year-long study published in 2015 found that hearing aid use reduced the risk of cognitive decline associated with hearing loss. And just last year, researchers reported that treating hearing loss in midlife is the single greatest change a person can make to lower their risk of dementia.
