When you think hearing loss, think brain loss ….

You hear with your ears, but you listen with your brain

Studies have shown that people with hearing loss lose cognitive function much faster than those without it. But in Australia, the average man diagnosed with hearing loss will take between seven and 10 years to act on it.He’ll get away with it for many of those years, because hearing loss is invisible. He may get grumpy and strain to hear, he may accuse others of mumbling, but he will often smile and nod and few will pick it up.He won’t know that his hearing is linked to his brain function and that what he’s not using, he’s losing.
