Being Patient will speak with Danielle Powell, an audiologist and epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins University, about the link between hearing impairment, cognitive health and dementia. We will discuss the red flags of hearing loss, treatments options for older adults, and caregiver strategies for people with dementia and hearing impairment.
If you find our articles and interviews helpful, please consider becoming a supporting member of our community. Frustrated by the lack of an editorially independent source of information on brain health and Alzheimer’s disease, we decided to create Being Patient. We are a team of dedicated journalists covering the latest research on Alzheimer’s, bringing you access to the experts and elevating the patient perspective on what it’s like to live with dementia.
