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?

I’m excited for you to hear this episode about hearing hygiene and how noise is dangerous to more than just hearing.
I’ll talk to you about the physical effects that it has on our bodies and the effects of noise on the learning environment. I’ll give you some examples of different sounds levels for various types of noise sources and signs that tell you when an environment is too loud.
I’ll give you some tips on how to protect you and your children from noise, including some examples of what a healthy hearing environment looks (or sounds) like, and some handy resources for more information like the American Speech-Language & Hearing Association (www.asha.org)
I hope you find it helpful.

The Social Security Administration is denying close to 75% of initial disability applications. That means almost 8 out of 10 applications are denied. In every state you can appeal these decisions and in most states, your appeal is heard by a Federal Administrative Law Judge at a hearing. But what takes place? What information is sought by the Judge? Who are the players in a hearing? What does the room look like? Answers to all of these questions and more will be given by New York disability lawyers Brian Mittman and Scott Daniels. They will give you invaluable insight into the disability hearing and what happens for "your day in court."
