“Hearing loss is the third most common health condition facing adults today. Despite being a potentially debilitating health issue many people delay seeing treatment out of denial, fear or embarrassment. Untreated hearing loss had been linked to a number of other health problems both physical and psychological including cognitive decline, anxiety, depression and increased risk of falls…get your hearing checked. Hearing loss is very common in older individuals and because of its link to depression it is critically important to take steps to address it.”
