Hearing Loss Affects Quality of Life

First published in the Nov. 25 print issue of the Outlook Valley Sun.

Hearing loss is a common condition that affects persons of all ages.
The consequences vary greatly. Hearing loss affects not only the people with it, but also their family members and communication partners. There is evidence that social isolation and reduced communication caused by hearing loss in older adults contributes to declines in cognitive function.
Modern amplification devices can minimize many difficulties. Consult Dr. Kevin Ivory, licensed audiologist, at La Cañada Hearing Aids & Audiology, 1434 Foothill Blvd., to learn about cost-effective options for every budget. Call (818) 928-1400.
