The Connection Between Hearing Loss and Mental Health
Hearing health is very closely tied to mental health. It's true! The connection between how we hear strengthens our bond with others and feeds a part of our brain like exercise builds our muscles. Hearing loss results in a poorer quality of life and can contribute to cognitive decline.
You've heard how crossword puzzles help keep you sharp, how about a baseline hearing test to check up on your hearing health? Your brain (and loved ones) will thank you!
Uncorrected hearing loss gives rise to poorer quality of life, isolation and reduced social activity, leading to depression.
Adults 50 years and older with untreated hearing loss are more likely to report depression, anxiety, anger and frustration, emotional instability and paranoia; than those who wear hearing aids.
Those with hearing loss experience a 30-40% greater decline in thinking abilities compared to those without hearing loss.
She made me feel very comfortable, and put my mind at ease as she explained everything that was going to take place during the hearing test. She explained the results of the hearing test, and took time for me to ask any questions I had concerning my hearing. Dr. Dimmick worked with me on putting the hearing aids in, taking them out, changing the batteries, EVERYTHING I need to know as a “1st time hearing aid wearer.” I am able to HEAR better than I have for over 40 years! Thank you so much!!!Lori B.
I went into Hearing Doctors of Iowa today for the first time and loved everything about my visit! I was greeted by their friendly receptionist, Alexis, and was taken care of quickly. Dr. Jessica Dimmick was kind and professional. I look forward to making Hearing Doctors of Iowa my new go to for all my hearing needs!Amanda F.
When my hearing specialist closed their doors in Ames, IA...I was really concerned...I had just purchased a new top of the line hearing aid!...fortunately Dr. Dimmick has recently opened Hearing Doctors of Iowa...I have only had a couple of small issues and she jumped through hoops to make sure I had a working hearing aid...I am 65, and I have never experienced a Doctor that cares about her patients as much as she does!..Your hearing is her top priority bar none...this rating should actually be 5++...Ralph J.
Did You Know?About Hearing Loss
The ear is the most efficient and the most sensitive sensory organ in the body. Our perception of the world is strongly influenced by visual stimuli, which is why we often underestimate the role of our ears.
The inner ear contains about 3,000 inner and 12,000 outer hair cells. They are extremely sensitive and can be destroyed by noise, causing irreparable hearing loss.
