Consequences of Untreated Hearing Loss
If left untreated, hearing loss can lead to:
Individuals with dementia suffer from memory loss and have difficulty remembering things and concentrating.
Studies have shown that adults with hearing loss are at a higher risk for dementia. The risk for dementia doubles for mild hearing loss, triples with moderate hearing loss, and is five-fold for severe hearing loss.
Losing the ability to hear sounds that we take for granted can cause feelings of sadness and anxiety, increasing the risk of depression.
Individuals with depression tend to lose interest in things they once loved and have trouble concentrating or making simple decisions.
Individuals with hearing loss may choose to avoid interaction and isolate themselves as hearing becomes more difficult.
Socially isolated individuals tend to have unfulfilling relationships and feel like they don’t belong anywhere. These factors can result in feelings of loneliness, increasing the risk of dementia and depression.

From the very 1st day my grandpa went to hearing partners, Lee Lee has always been very professional and makes us feel at home.
She is very patient in answering all the queries that my grandpa has and explaining in simple terms so he could understand how to go about using the hearing aid.
I feel confident and assured to have Lee Lee as my grandpa’s go-to audiologist.
I would like to commend Si Hui, an audiologist from Oticon, for going the extra mile for my family and daughter with hearing loss.
