Awareness about the connection between hearing loss and dementia can help minimize the risks of dementia. Hearing loss is one of the most significant risk factors for dementia, accounting for 8% of all cases. Several studies have shown that hearing loss appears to double the risk of dementia. As hearing loss worsens, the risk of dementia increases. Incident dementia increases across mild, moderate, and severe hearing loss levels, with severe hearing loss leading to five times the risk for dementia. This easy-to-read, informative book shares various perspectives with clear illustrations and helpful tips.
