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
