How Are Hearing And Cognition Related To Each Other?

  We HEAR with our ears and LISTEN with our brain. Our brain plays a significant role in our ability to hear.

  With untreated hearing loss, you have to work harder to make sense of what people are saying. This is called having a higher “cognitive load”.

  Having a higher “cognitive load” can affect your memory and how you process information.

  Be empowered to make changes!

  Lifestyle factors can impact cognitive impairment. Address these risk factors:

  • Hearing Loss
  • Vision Loss
  • Medication Side Effects
  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Issues
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Poor Lifestyle Choices
  • Brain Fog
