Recent research from Johns Hopkins has drawn a connection between varying levels of hearing impairment and diminished mental health. Along with hearing loss, people demonstrated difficulty walking, signs of dementia and general brain function loss which resulted in forgetfulness, impaired thinking and fluctuations in mood or personality. Hearing aids help individuals process sound and follow conversations. Despite common misconceptions, today's hearing aids are inconspicuous, affordable and highly effective in combating hearing loss. If you or someone you love exhibits signs of hearing impairment, contact HearingLife to discuss if hearing aids or other services are right for you. 110A Central Ave., 908.228.5650. www.hearinglife.com/hearing-aids-centers/New-Jersey/Westfield
