Hearing loss, especially if it is not addressed with hearing aids or other hearing care, can increase your likelihood for cognitive decline. Symptoms associated with hearing loss can signal cognitive decline. For that reason, research suggests that care homes should provide hearing loss help for residents.
Audiologist Natalie Stephenson joins Being Patient Live Talks on Friday, November 10th, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET to discuss how hearing care can support overall well-being and brain health. She will also address how considering hearing loss during diagnosis can foster more accurate diagnoses of Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Working as an audiologist for almost a decade, Stephenson provides specialist, person-centered, evidence-based hearing diagnostics and rehabilitation to children and adults. Within the holistic paradigm approach, her approach to hearing care counseling and rehabilitation is to meet a person where they are at and build trust. She was drawn to audiology because of its potential to empower and support people with hearing needs to have the life they seek.
