Old age deafness is the loss of hearing that gradually happens in most of individuals as they grow older. This is one of the common conditions affecting elderly both male as well as female. Normally aging starts at the age of 45yrs in females and 55 in men. Commonly seen changes in auditory system are cochlear and auditory nerve damage. Hearing loss starts with high frequency and later it involve the low and mid frequencies. Common complaint these individual present with is I can hear the voices but cannot make out what they are talking. Hearing loss make it hard to enjoy talking with family and friends, leading to feelings of isolation. Aging affects both the sides equally. Regular hearing testing is required to monitor the hearing status and also it will help in planning the rehabilitation. Recent research suggests that ignoring age related hearing loss may end up with dementia or memory deficits. Audiogram done by qualified audiologist helps us for planning appropriate hearing aid selection and fitting. Digital hearing aids really help in improving speech understanding in quiet as well as noisy surroundings. Further details please contact: AARAV SPEECH AND HEARING CLINIC
