- Social isolation
- Poor concentration
- Changes in short term memory
Additionally, many people wait years--12 years on average--before they admit to needing hearing aids and actually will wear them. Family and primary care physicians influence the decision to get a hearing evaluation by an otolaryngologist and to purchase hearing aids.
