Hearing loss affects your brain structure

It has been proven that hearing loss is correlated with dementia by Frank Lin at John Hopkins. However, we do know that hearing loss affects the way your brain functions. Strickland Ear Clinic recommends focusing on aging healthily to decrease the risk of hearing loss and dementia.

We consider healthy aging to be...

  • Staying physically healthy and active with regular exercise
