Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. At a time when more and more people…especially older people…have been isolated…the ability to hear is more important than ever. Beyond that…
“Uncorrected hearing loss, over a ten year period, gives you a fifty two percent higher risk of dementia.”
Charlotte Yeh is the Chief Medical Officer for AARP services. Speaking on a recent episode of the What’s Next…Living Longer, Better, Smarter podcast…Dr. Yeh said a wide range of hearing assistance devices can help. Many feature great new technology. She says for years, her own father, seemed withdrawn. And after he at last got the needed assistance..the difference in him was dramatic..
“And I’m thinking..I’m a doctor…I thought he had dementia…and all it was is he couldn’t hear.”
