Hearing loss impacts all the aspects of your life

Hearing loss plays a major role in our quality of life, from our emotional well-being and physical health to our careers and leisure activities.


Yet millions of people who have hearing loss let it go untreated, despite research showing links between untreated hearing loss and an increased risk of falls, depression, anxiety, hospitalisations and even dementia.


Hearing loss impacts our emotional well-being


When we hear at our best, there’s nothing stopping us from enjoying the sounds of laughter, music, nature or conversations with family and friends.


Hearing these sounds help fuel us, and undeniably make moments more memorable and life more enjoyable.


When hearing is impaired, those sounds we’ve taken for granted fade — leading to a cascade of changes that could impact us emotionally.


Hearing loss might cause embarrassment


Missing favorite sounds might lead to sadness


Missing critical information could create anxiety


Not hearing conversations clearly might lead to feeling left out


And feeling left out can lead to depression and social isolation


Hearing loss impacts our physical and mental health


Hearing loss also plays a significant role in our physical and mental well-being — with a growing body of research linking hearing loss to dementia and cognitive decline.


When we hear our best, it’s easy to stay engaged and alert and active.


When hearing is impaired, our sense of space shrinks, warning cues get missed, and we withdraw from social activities or situations. This leaves our physical and mental health vulnerable.


Adults with hearing loss are up to 5 times more likely to develop dementia1


Hearing loss is linked to a three-fold risk of falling2


Accidental injuries are up to 50 percent more likely for people with hearing loss3
