Hearing loss has been associated with an increased risk of dementia, especially when it comes to older adults. Though all humans brains become smaller with age, shrinkage is accelerated with adults with hearing loss. And, if untreated, hearing loss may result in serious long-term consequences to healthy brain functioning.

That’s why it’s important to get an annual hearing screening once you have reached 50.
