Hearing loss is the most prevalent chronic condition in older adults today. Currently it is estimated that 31 million Americans suffer from hearing loss making communication difficulties more prevalent than both heart disease and arthritis. Approximately 50 percent of older adults suffer from a hearing loss serious enough to effect their communication and interpersonal relationships.
Unlike changes in vision, the loss is not easily recognizable and rarely prompts empathy or understanding. Hearing loss has been found to lead to social isolation, depression, paranoia and increased levels of suspicion. Failure to respond to a direct question or an incorrect response may lead ot being labeled “cognitively impaired”, rather than hearing impaired.
