Additional Benefits of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids may promote better general health, by reducing self-rated psychosocial hearing difficulties and promoting a more active, engaged lifestyle (Dawes and colleagues, 2015)
By facilitating improved communication, hearing aids may improve mood and increase social interactions, thereby perhaps impacting scores on cognitive tests (Amieva and colleagues, 2015)
Patients may feel less exhausted after an hour of socializing- can engage more easily with family and friends.
People with dementia put a good deal of effort into communicating, hearing technology could reduce the cognitive effort and resource allocation (studies currently being performed regarding this)
