New study finds that when hearing loss goes untreated, the cost is astronomical

“The report emphasizes the “devastating implications for the individual with hearing loss as well as for their family.” It notes research showing that those with hearing loss are more likely to become socially isolated and have mental and physical health problems, and it cites “a growing body of research showing an association between hearing loss and dementia.”

However, the commission adds, “The devastating impacts of hearing loss for the individual and for society could be avoided if there was better support for those with hearing loss–including improved provision, take-up and use of hearing aids.”
