#HearingFactFriday: Millions of people could benefit from hearing aids

There are a lot of Americans with hearing loss. Estimates range from between 37.5 million up to 44 million of us — and that’s only adults. (That’s nearly one in every six adults, by the way.) Yet a large percentage of adults with hearing loss let it go untreated, despite research showing links between untreated hearing loss and increased risk of falls, depression, hospitalizations and even dementia.

Treating hearing loss with hearing aids, on the other hand, is proven to minimize those risks, reduce hearing-loss-related cognitive decline, and provide a host of other benefits like improved earning power, increased confidence and social participation, better relationships, and better overall quality of life.

If you’ve got hearing loss but don’t wear hearing aids, see what current hearing aid wearers are saying or, better yet, try them and experience the difference for yourself. Call 1-888-908-1845 or click here to schedule a 30-day, risk-free demonstration.
