HEARING LOSS & DEMENTIA

How Hearing Loss Plays A Role In Overall Cognitive Function

Linking Hearing Loss to Dementia

Studies have shown that hearing loss may increase the risk of cognitive problems and even dementia.

Recent studies have shown that people with untreated moderate to severe hearing loss have a 50% higher chance to develop cognitive problems like dementia. Other problems such as depression and a greater risk of falling down are also common, leading to even more hospital stays and healthcare costs.

Finding a hearing loss solution is easy and improves communication and social interactions, which studies have shown can stop and even reverse signs of dementia.

Lake Erie Hearing offers a simple cognitive screening test that will show if you might benefit from a hearing solution.

Cognivue Thrive

Lake Erie Hearing uses Cognivue to screen cognitive performance. Cognivue Thrive quickly and effectively tests cognitive performance to see if a hearing solution is beneficial.

The screening is not intended to determine if you will have or will be getting dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. However, the results help us understand and correct any hearing loss that may be contributing to any potential cognitive decline.

Cognivue Thrive: How it Works

Cognivue Thrive uses the same FDA-cleared technology that’s been used by neurologists and other physicians to test for cognitive function. This 5-minute, computerized screening evaluates three cognitive domains: memory, visuospatial, and executive function.

Cognivue Thrive also measures two speed performance parameters: reaction time and speed processing.
