IS IT HEARING LOSS OR MEMORY?
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2020
2:00pm – 3:00pm
Hearing Loss is a natural byproduct of aging. In the USA, the greatest fear in aging, aside from monetary, is fear of losing one’s memory. The two functions, hearing loss and memory, are independent of each other, yet interactive with each other. Most often people worry that “they just weren’t paying attention”. Hearing loss greatly interferes with our ability to pay attention. Solutions are simple. This talk will help you know the difference between hearing loss and memory, understand the interaction, identify the problem and guide you to solutions to restore confidence in all settings.
