RIDBC/SCIC Hearing Awareness Week Activity

RIDBC has shared it’s World Hearing Day landing page featuring A/Prof Cathy Birman’s video.

This contains the following messaging:

  • HL is single biggest potentially reversable risk factor for dementia in middle ear
  • People over 50 should get their hearing tested every five years – via GP or using phone app
  • HL can lead to social isolation, depression and anxiety among older adults
  • Managing your hearing loss with hearing aids and cochlear implants is very important
