Hearing loss is more than just a quiet world - it could be a risk factor for dementia. This episode explores the surprising link between hearing impairment (alternative keyword: deafness) and cognitive decline.

  • The Effort to Hear Takes a Toll: Explore how struggling to understand speech can strain your brain, potentially contributing to cognitive decline.
  • Isolation Fuels the Problem: Uncover how social isolation, often associated with hearing loss, can further harm brain health.
