Hearing Loss in Seniors: Causes, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Hearing Loss in Seniors: Causes, Diagnosis, and Treatment

As a senior get older, they experience a couple of changes in their bodily functions that may alter a few aspects of their life. One of those changes is hearing loss.

According to professionals of home care in Melbourne, Florida, hearing loss due to aging is a common condition that affects many older adults. An estimate of 1in 2 adults over the age of 65 experience some degree of hearing loss.

Hearing loss happens gradually over time, caused by various changes in the inner ear, which may include:

  • Alterations in the structures of the inner ear
  • Changes in blood flow to the ear
  • Impairment in the nerves responsible for hearing
  • Changes in brain processes for speech and sound
  • Damage to the tiny hairs in the ear that are responsible for transmitting sound to the brain

If you or someone you know have symptoms of age-related hearing loss, have your doctor diagnose your/their condition. You will have to complete a full physical exam to rule out other causes of hearing loss.

Loud blasts of noise, sudden changes in pressure, poking your eardrum with an object and infection can cause your eardrum to rupture and affect your hearing. Vivien Williams: Dr. Matthew Carlson says temporary hearing loss can happen when your ears are plugged with wax or fluid behind the ear drum, for example. Nerve-related hearing loss is usually permanent.
