Scientists have developed a new theory as to how hearing loss may cause dementia and believe that tackling this sensory impairment early may help to prevent the disease.

Your post of Sept. 8th, 2020 is an eye opener, and I think,
should be reposted,
our kids and parents, deserve to know, so they wont fall into the hearing "aide" trap, which are 90% volume. I'm surprised no one has responded. oh well.
I hope these come through. I'm just learning attachments and links.
I know that hearing loss, for my brain, is a BIG loss, and the "thinking" voice, and the "vocal" voice are separate now and need new pathways. Making these new pathways takes a lot of work, but must be done.
Mike Rowe's mannerisms, and voice, are helping me laugh at myself, he is so refreshing.
This "creeping" Dementia, ( feeling lost, Tinnitus, out of balance, and being "startled", because of one ear only), for me, is set aside for a moment, by listening/reading, to well articulated words and great uplifting stories. It is "music to the ear/s", not "noise". I wear my bone phones all day, they are my "anti dementia", tools now.
I seek out resonant frequencies to "quiet" myself, but they seem few and far between with all the swipe phones, and "stiff necks".
We have 2 hands, 2 eyes, 2 ears, and the other senses.
But when one hand is missing, (holding a phone), we have limited capabilities.
Throw in a bad ear or two, and even less.
In the "confidence" world, being hands free and natural is the only way to go.
Maybe "dementia" is in the word "incredulous".
