Hearing loss is a risk factor for dementia
In mid-life, hearing loss is a potential modifiable risk factor for developing dementia
According to research in the Lancet, 35% of dementia cases can be explained by potentially modifiable risk factors. Untreated hearing loss, smoking, depression, and physical inactivity are all potentially modifiable risk factors. However, hearing loss is one of the risk factors in mid-life that your clients can do something about.*
