there is no direct relationship, from the indirect relationship, because deafness affects communication inconvenience, leading to mood changes such as loneliness and fear, long-term depression will cause depression, thus increasing the risk factors, and eventually become the risk and occurrence of dementia.

when ourhearing lossis mainly a degenerative change, which is a normal phenomenon in a sense. However, some elderly people are afraid of trouble after hearing loss, try to reduce the verbal communication with others, over time, the elderly tend to become withdrawn, irritable, cognitive decline, and even the emergence of Alzheimer's disease. As a matter of fact, it is not for the elderly in the family to have hearing impairment. If they are not handled properly, the whole family will be affected and the family will be at odds with each other. The effect of deafness on the life of the elderly is a little from the beginning, inadvertently changed the living habits of the elderly, become lonely, and even eventually lead to Alzheimer's disease. Therefore, the impact of deafness on the life of the elderly is from the beginning of a little, inadvertently changed the living habits of the elderly, become lonely, and even eventually lead to Alzheimer's disease, should be paid enough attention to, and early detection and medical treatment.

many old people will encounter this kind of thing: they call for dinner, they can hear it clearly in the next building, and the old man still sits still in the same place. I like to interrupt, but I don't know why I'm talking about it. These are signs of senile deafness and patients need to be vigilant.
hearing loss causes chain reaction
physiologically, hearing will gradually decline with the increase of age. Generally speaking, after the age of 60, there will be varying degrees of deafness, but some people will appear deafness in their forties and fifties. The problem is that some older people feel abandoned by their families after they are deaf, leading to depression. If you ignore it at this time, it will cause psychological trauma to the elderly. Experts suggest that once hearing loss is found in the elderly, family members should encourage and accompany the elderly to the hospital in a timely manner. After finding out the cause of the disease, active treatment.
in fact, while hearing loss, the ability of the elderly to accept information from the outside world is also weakening. In addition, it can lead to language disorders in the elderly. Because the auditory and auditory language centers are located in the temporal lobe, and the auditory language center needs sound auditory system transmission, when hearing loss, auditory transmission decreases, auditory language centers naturally receive less information, which is often referred to as"deaf-mute". This prolonged"incoordination"between hearing and auditory language centers can lead to dysfunction in a particular area of the brain, resulting in Alzheimer's disease. Taking positive measures can avoid or delay the occurrence and development of senile deafness.
