The increasingly older human population suffers from many age-related disorders. There is currently a surge in publications on aspects of aging on hearing loss, on the benefits of hearing aids and cochlear implants in the elderly, and on the strong correlation between hearing loss, cognitive decline, and early onset of dementia. Although the results are not generalizable to all adults aged 65 years and older, an analysis of self-reported hearing impairment among members of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) who purchased AARP Medicare supplemental insurance also found significantly lower physical health component and mental health component scores as Cited by:
Older adults with hearing loss were found to be at a 24% greater risk of cognitive impairment than those without hearing loss. In our lab (Harrison Bush, Lister, Edwards, Lin, & Betz, ), the relationship between pure-tone hearing and the most comprehensive battery of . Little is known regarding the normative levels of leisure activities among the oldest old and the factors that explain the age-associated decline in these activities. Methods. The sample included cognitively intact community-dwelling elderly persons with no disability in Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and minimal dependency in Cited by:
The Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of would allow hearing aids that are intended to be used by adults to compensate for mild to moderate hearing impairment to be sold over the counter. The legislation would eliminate the requirement that people get a medical evaluation or sign a waiver in order to acquire these hearing aids. the hearing sensitivity of the U.S. adult population stratified by age, gender, race, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and other variables. 2. To define the prevalence of hearing impairment among U.S. adults and relate prevalence to factors such as noise exposure, medical conditions, ototoxicity from.

Lincoln, Neb.: Cliffs Notes, © (OCoLC) Below are a few statistics based on hearing loss in the elderly to take into consideration: According to the American Academy of Audiology, hearing impairment is the third most commonly reported chronic problem affecting the aged population.
More than 7 million aged persons suffer from some degree of hearing impairment. Hearing Impairment. Hearing impairment is the most common cause of ENT disability, with million people affected worldwide, mostly from low- and middle-income countries, including high prevalence in South Asia, Asia-Pacific, and sub-Saharan Africa From: Hunter's Tropical Medicine and Emerging Infectious Diseases (Tenth Edition), An example of a hearing-related instrument that incorporates a question specifically designed to assess QoL is the Hearing Handicap Inventory for the Elderly (HHIE) This is a self-assessment tool designed to measure the effects of hearing impairment on the emotional and social adjustment of elderly people.
This inventory is comprised of two subscales: a item subscale that Cited by: Untreated hearing loss has serious emotional and social consequences for older persons, according to a major new study by The National Council on the Aging (NCOA).
The study was conducted by the Seniors Research Group, an alliance between NCOA and Market Strategies, Inc. Background Whether hearing loss is independently associated with accelerated cognitive decline in older adults is unknown.
Methods We studied older adults (mean age, years) enrolled in the Health ABC Study, a prospective observational study begun in Our baseline cohort consisted of participants without prevalent cognitive impairment (Modified Mini-Mental State Examination.
Arthur Wingfield, Amanda Lash, in Handbook of the Psychology of Aging (Eighth Edition), Variability in Age-Related Hearing Loss. The previously noted variability in hearing acuity among older adults, like many changes in adult aging, can be accounted for by genetic as well as environmental influences.
In the case of hearing acuity environmental factors include exposure to noise. Associations Between Hearing Impairment and Mortality Risk in Older Persons: The Blue Mountains Hearing Study Article in Annals of epidemiology 20(6) June with 56 Reads.
Hearing loss may develop at any time during the life course. The onset can be sudden or gradual, and one or both ears can be affected. Hearing loss can result from a variety of causes (e.g., trauma, infection, genetic syndromes, aging, or excessive noise exposure), and the pathological changes may occur in one or more regions of the auditory by: 2.
Context Dementia is common, costly, and highly age related. Little attention has been paid to the identification of modifiable lifestyle habits for its prevention. Objective To explore the association between physical activity and the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia.
Design, Setting, and Subjects Data come from a community sample of randomly selected men and women 65 Cited by: Best known as TV’s Incredible Hulk, actor and former bodybuilder Ferrigno, 64, lost 75 percent of his hearing at the age of 3 due to an ear infection.
He’s worn hearing aids since he was 4. “I think my hearing loss helped create a determination within me to be all I can be, and gave me a certain strength of character, too,” Ferrigno has. Even when the person with hearing loss utilizes hearing aids and active listening strategies, it is crucial that others involved in the communication process consistently use good communication strategies, including the following: Face the hearing-impaired person directly, on the same level and in good light whenever possible.

population-based cohort ipants. Hearing loss, also known as hearing impairment, is a partial or total inability to hear. A deaf person has little to no hearing. Hearing loss may occur in one or both ears. In children, hearing problems can affect the ability to learn spoken language and in adults it can create difficulties with social interaction and at work.
In some people, particularly older people, hearing loss can result Complications: Loneliness. Vision and Hearing Loss Are Tied to Cognitive Decline. both vision and hearing impairment occur in one person in nine age 80 and older (fewer. Hearing loss ranks second only to arthritis in prevalence among chronic problems affecting the physical health of the aged population (Harris, ).
The prevalence of hearing loss in the elderly population has been estimated to be between 25% to 80% with the wide range explained by differences in the criteria employed and the sampling criteria. Age-related hearing loss is not inevitable, but it is a common consequence of aging.
Presbycusis (age-related hearing loss) may be coupled with noise exposure, illness, or use of ototoxic medications that have occurred over many years of life.
The etiology of hearing impairment is complex and multifactorial, representing the cumulative influences of an amalgam of factors, such as aging, genetic, epigenetic, environmental, health comorbidity, diet and lifestyle factors, as well as the complex potential interactions among these factors, that may all contribute to its by: 3.
