Depression & Hearing Health

How Does Hearing Loss Contribute to Depression?

Adults with hearing loss tend to withdraw from engaging with family and friends. They experience social isolation, anxiety, and embarrassment which ultimately leads to depression. Given that hearing loss affects more than nine million Americans over the age of 65 and more than 10 million between the ages of 45 and 64, the emotional consequences of untreated hearing loss can be severe. Even more significant is the fact that roughly 60% of seniors and 85% of middle-aged individuals with hearing loss go untreated!

 

Studies show people who suffer from untreated hearing loss are more likely to suffer from depression as well as social isolation.

What Can I Do?

Seeking out treatment for hearing loss is the first step to taking back control of the world around you. Being able to hear properly improves not only your ability to communicate effectively but hearing aid users also report substantial improvement in their mental well being, relationships and overall quality of life. Don’t postpone treatment for hearing loss – call Advanced Hearing Group to schedule an evaluation and a hearing test.

Happy Patients:

We want to thank Dr. Johnson and the staff at the South Scottsdale office, for their prompt service, when I had a problem, with one of my hearing aids. They saw me within an hour of my call to their office and resolved the problem, in a few minutes. We appreciate a business that is so helpful and caring.

As a person who was just diagnosed with tinnitus and some hearing loss, I decided to see Dr. Gary Johnson and discuss if hearing aids would be beneficial to me. Dr. Johnson gave me a thorough examination and evaluation and recommended hearing aids for me to help with the hearing loss and help quiet the tinnitus. I have been wearing my new hearing aids for about 2 months now and I am so happy with them. Dr. Johnson did a wonderful job evaluating what would work for me. He is very pleasant, listens to the needs of the patient, answers all questions and makes you feel very comfortable. I have been helped with the hearing aids for both my tinnitus and hearing loss. Don’t hesitate to go see Dr. Johnson if you are in need of someone who can help with your tinnitus and hearing problems. He is the best in the business.
