Hearing Loss with Age

Age-related hearing loss

Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) can be caused by a wide range of conditions or simply by the natural aging process. Approximately one-third of people over 65 are affected by hearing loss.1 Changes in your hearing as you get older are normal; if you’re concerned about your hearing, help and support are never too far away.

Symptoms of age-related hearing loss

Some common symptoms that to keep in mind when you or someone close to you may have age-related hearing loss are:

  • Trouble hearing high-pitched sounds or certain people's voices (particularly a woman or a child's voice)
  • Loved one's complaining that the TV or radio volume is too loud
  • Trouble hearing in crowds
  • Not fully catching all of a conversation, even at close range
  • Constantly saying 'What?'

Risks of untreated age-realted hearing loss

The impact of hearing loss can go far beyond trouble hearing. Hearing issues have a strong correlation with other health conditions and diseases, including Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, depression, social isolation and loneliness, and injury-causing falls.
