Hearing Loss

Connect with Loved Ones

Don't let difficulty hearing create a barrier between you and your friends and family.

Stay Mentally Sharp

Many studies support evidence that those with hearing loss are twice as likely to develop dementia.

Simple to Use Devices

Hearing device technology is the best it has ever been. We make owning and using devices easy for you!

Hearing Loss & Dementia

  • In 2017 an article by the Lance Commission on Dementia Prevention Intervention and Care estimated up to 35% of dementia could be prevented due to modifiable risk factors, the biggest of those is hearing loss.

  • Moderate to severe hearing impairment had a 29-57% greater risk of cognitive impairment than those with normal hearing. 

  • Cognitive studies found people wearing hearing devices improved their performance on perception, discernment, awareness, comprehension, learning and understanding. When hearing devices are prescribed at the onset of age-related hearing loss, this postpones cognitive decline. 

What Makes Our Practice Different

  • Hope Hearing is not owned by any manufacturer or buying group, so we are free to fit whatever is appropriate to each individual patient that comes in.

  • Doctorate level Audiologist on staff to help you hear, which means you are getting the most up to date product with quality evaluation and continued patient care. 

  • It’s easy to come in and have a complimentary appointment to discuss what is going on with your hearing… and it’s easy to hear better than to not!

  • We also treat people with hyperacusis (sensitivity to loud sounds). Hearing goes far beyond just the auditory system.
