Our Team Can Help Reduce Your Risk of Developing Dementia
At Family Hearing Center, we are committed to providing you and your loved ones with the highest possible level of hearing health care — that includes meeting your needs with cutting-edge technology and staying up to date with treatment plans based on the latest science and audiology research. Current studies indicate that individuals with hearing loss are at an increased risk for developing cognitive decline and dementia and that treating hearing loss is the single most modifiable risk factor for reducing the risk of dementia.
While your risk of developing dementia increases with your degree of hearing loss, it is important to note that even mild hearing loss can increase your risk by as much as 200%! If you or a loved one struggles to hear clearly, we can help reduce your risk of dementia beginning with a Cognivue cognitive screening in Oahu, HI.
What Can Cognivue Screening Help With?
Whether your hearing loss is slight or significant, your cognitive abilities will likely be affected. If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, a Cognivue cognitive screening can help you get on the road to clearer hearing and reduce the risk of cognitive decline:
- Difficulty hearing when there is background noise
- TV or radio needs to be louder for you than for your spouse or family
- Trouble following a conversation in the car
- The common need to ask others to repeat themselves
Thankfully, today’s leading options for hearing loss treatment can help to slow down or even prevent the development of dementia.
The Cognivue Screening Process
With Cognivue’s FDA-cleared computerized neuropsychological test, we can evaluate your memory capacity, visuospatial skills, executive function, reaction time, and speed processing. Your screening will include the following:
- Five-minute self-administered computerized screening
- Proven superior test-retest reliability
- Evaluates three cognitive domains – memory, visuospatial, and executive function
- Measures two-speed performance parameters – reaction time and speed
Using the results of your screening, our hearing specialists will recommend an appropriate hearing loss treatment customized to your hearing needs. Our experts use Cognivue assessments to help combat dementia by staying at the forefront of modern hearing and cognitive technology.
