Oct. 11, 2017 Meeting

Please join us on Oct. 11, 2017 when Carol Maksimow will present "Hearing Loss - The Silent Epidemic".

Carol Maksimow, B.S., ACA, BC-HIS is the Founder/President of the Hearing Technology Center and Hearing Aid Specialists of CT servicing our local community for over 20 years.

Hearing loss is on the rise among the US population. It is estimated that 2/3 of Americans over age 70 are affected as per the latest Johns Hopkins study results. In most cases, this silent condition gradually affects hearing; many affected individuals remain unaware of these physical changes and do not seek care early enough.

When untreated, longstanding hearing loss can result in permanent, decreased communication capabilities impacting self esteem and the ability to interact with others. As a result, many withdraw from what were once enjoyable events and social situations. This negative physical and psychological impact is backed by recent studies revealing the link between untreated hearing loss, depression and dementia. These recent findings have brought this issue to the forefront of medical care.

Come learn what hearing loss is and how this condition is a silent destroyer of both individuals and relationships. We will discuss the “hearing loss and dementia link” as well as how to recognize the early signs of treatable hearing loss and the latest treatment options available. We will also share helpful tips to increase your effectiveness in working and communicating with an aging population.
