Understanding Hearing Loss: The Key to Preventing Cognitive Decline


As we age, it’s natural to experience changes in our hearing. However, what many people may not realize is the profound impact that hearing loss can have on cognitive function. Fortunately, experts like Dr. Rhee Nesson, Au.D., Doctor of Audiology & Certified Dementia Practitioner, are dedicated to raising awareness about this crucial connection.

Dr. Nesson, the founder of Hearing Doctors of New Jersey, is on a mission to educate individuals about the link between hearing loss and cognitive decline. For this reason, she is eager to host two upcoming events at senior centers in Chatham and Millburn, New Jersey.

Chatham Senior Center

The first event, taking place at the Chatham Senior Center on March 28th at 1 pm, promises to be an enlightening discussion on the topic of cognitive decline in hearing loss. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from Dr. Nesson’s expertise and gain valuable insights into the realities of untreated hearing loss.

Milburn Senior Center

For those unable to attend the Chatham event, there’s another chance to participate at the Millburn Senior Center on April 26th at 11:30 am. Dr. Nesson will shed light on the same topic, allowing the community another opportunity to understand the importance of addressing hearing loss and its potential role in the prevention of further problems.

Untreated hearing loss can accelerate cognitive decline and increase the risk of conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease—making this opportunity to learn vital to long-term health. By taking proactive steps to learn about and address hearing loss early on, individuals have a better chance of maintaining cognitive function as they age.
