Hearing Issues in Seniors By Sylvie Auger, Audiologist
As we get older, our auditory system as well as our balance system changes like every other sensory modality. What are these typical changes, when do we expect them to happen and are there some ways that we can slow their progression or even, maybe, prevent further deterioration?
- To understand the impact of a hearing loss on cognitive functions
- To understand how hearing and balance are intricately related
