Hearing loss is a very common problem among people that affects the quality of life for the patient, family members, and caretakers. Unfortunately, hearing loss is often undiagnosed and untreated. The inevitable deterioration in hearing ability that occurs with age –also known as presbycusis — has many causes and can vary in severity from mild to substantial. Left untreated, hearing loss of a moderate or greater degree affects communication and can contribute to isolation, depression, and, possibly, loss in cognitive decline.
