Hearing Loss Matters (AKA, Hear for the Health of It!)
By: Mary Bauer, Hearing Specialist at Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services, Minnesota Department of Human Services
Age-related hearing loss affects most of us: in our work with seniors, with family members and friends, and personally. This webinar features recent research from John Hopkins that addresses the alarming consequences of untreated age-related hearing loss in seniors; including how it impacts their health, finances, relationships and safety.
Learn about the importance of early intervention, identify effective steps to take to address hearing loss, and discover ways to strengthen community supports through technology, effective communication strategies and best practice policies.
Implementing some or all of the strategies identified in this presentation will help improve the quality of life for seniors with hearing loss and help them become more engaged in their communities.
