Did you know? Your ears can be a “window to your mind” and hearing loss may increase depression risk, especially for those younger than 70 years.
In the U.S., it is estimated that 37 million adults have some degree of hearing loss, while 22 million suffer from some form of depression.
Do you enjoy daily pleasures from talking on the phone, dining out, stimulating conversations, sounds of nature and cultural events or do you often avoid social interactions? When you miss fun activities, does it negatively affect your mood?
Those with sensory loss, especially both hearing and vision, experience depressive symptoms more than the general population and research indicates there is more acute need for timely healthcare intervention when increased sensory loss constrains daily functionality. Just as you take care of your vision, it is vital that you take best care of your hearing.
The capacity for you and loved ones to experience the joy of hearing can positively influence social interactions, personal relationships and state of mind. Further, those with better hearing can better manage activities of daily living and safely navigate surroundings, even in situations with listening and communication challenges.
