Hearing Loss

What are the numbers? ?

  • 63% of adults aged 70 and older have some degree of hearing loss.
  • Only 40% of adults 70 and older who could benefit from hearing aids actually use them.
  • Less than 30% of people who fail a hearing screening seek audiology care.

WHY is untreated hearing loss in older adults important?

Untreated hearing loss is associated with:
⚠️ dementia
⚠️ depression
⚠️ social isolation
⚠️ poor quality of life
⚠️ increased hospitalization
⚠️ increased hospital readmission

Our goals

Make sure 100% of adults who need to manage their hearing know how!

Why? Because we believe everyone deserves to know their options and make informed decisions about their own hearing health.
