Audiology Australia’s Hearing Health and Dementia Position Statement

Audiology Australia has established a new position statement on Hearing Health and Dementia. As the Australian population ages, the number of people at risk of, and living with, dementia is expected to increase greatly over time. Recent studies have identified an association between age-related hearing loss and cognitive decline and/or dementia, which has garnered attention from the media and public. This position statement communicates AudA’s position on this issue and provides guidance for audiologists in light of the current evidence regarding the association between hearing loss and dementia.
