If you think you have a memory loss problem, it could be because of your hearing

Memory loss often takes center stage when it comes to concerns about our health, especially as we age. However, there are important reasons why we should also focus on our hearing.

Hearing is a critical aspect of our daily lives; especially in building and sustaining relationships. However, hearing loss doesn't just disrupt communication, it is potentially impacting cognition and memory. Recent research is discovering a link between cognition and hearing loss.  Often when someone initially thinks they have a memory problem, it may actually be a hearing problem instead.
