Recent research findings indicate that older adults with hearing loss are more likely to develop problems thinking and remembering than older adults whose hearing is normal. It has been reported that as many as 27 million Americans over age 50, including two-thirds of men and women aged 70 years and older, suffer from some form of hearing loss. According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, close to 8 million people between the ages of 18 and 44 have hearing loss. A study last year from Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute on Aging reported that people with hearing loss have accelerated brain tissue loss, possibly contributing to a decline in memory and other cognitive function.
Also of concern is the fact that only 15 percent of those who need a hearing aid get one, leaving much of the problem and its consequences untreated. Diminished hearing can impact can impact conversation with family members and health care professionals, but what if untreated hearing loss could also impact the diagnosis of dementia?

June is Aphasia Awareness Month
Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that impairs the ability to speak and understand others, and often includes difficulty reading and writing, but does not affect intelligence. According to the National Aphasia Association, aphasia affects about one million Americans, both young and old, and is more common than Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy, yet, most people have never heard of it. Improvement in language is a slow process that usually involves both helping the individual and family understand the nature of aphasia.
Research advances are helping us to understand the role of neuroplasticity , the ability of the brain to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life, and are leading to improved medical and therapeutic treatments.
Please join my guests: Ellayne S. Ganzfried, M.S., CCC-SLP, a speech-language pathologist and the Executive Director of the National Aphasia Association, and Swathi Kiran, PhD,CCC-SLP, a professor at Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at Boston University, Research Director at the Aphasia resource Center, and a World-Renowned Expert in Rehabilitation After Stroke.
The National Aphasia Association (NAA) is a nonprofit organization that promotes public education, research, rehabilitation and support services to assist people with aphasia and their families.

Should you take a bottle of sports drink down to the gym when you do that hour's aerobics class? Will you feel ill effects without it? And what about that Saturday soccer game? Whether you would benefit from consuming a sports drink depends on the events you are taking part in and your goals. Tune in 8/20 at noon ET to find out more.
Join me, Rogue Instructor, as I chat about various boutique formats. Boutique formats are not yet widely available. Why? Because there usually is only one instructor who knows how to teach it and that would be the creator of the format.
Rhythm Walking is one of the boutique formats discussed today, because it happens to be created by me. Check it out and let me know what you think.
While listening to the show I hope you are thinking about some good advice to offer me. I'd love your input, whatever your background, but especially if you're a professional group fitness instructor.
Do you have a new fitness format? We want to hear about it. Yes, you can be a guest on my show; I'd love to interview you! It's pretty easy to do. Just call in on the phone number and we'll chat live.
While you're at it, you might as well sign up for your own BlogTalk Radio show. Speak your mind and find your niche audience. And please become a follower of mine. Thanks!
