Are you experiencing these symptoms of hearing loss?

Do you know the facts about hearing loss and dementia?
Here are a few things we will be discussing at our lunch. Did you know:
- Hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the United States?
- People with untreated hearing loss are 2-5 times more likely to develop dementia?**
- Research supports early hearing care intervention for reduced risk of cognitive decline and better overall health?
- People with hearing loss wait an average of seven years before seeking help?
