Dementia warning: People who struggle to hear conversations at parties may be at risk

“However, there is growing evidence that developing dementia is not inevitable and that the risk could be reduced by treating pre-existing conditions.

“Whilst preliminary, these results suggest speech-in-noise hearing impairment could represent a promising target for dementia prevention.”

Dementia is a syndrome associated with an ongoing decline of brain functioning, which affects roughly one in 14 people over the age of 65, and one in six people over 80.

It is caused by damage to brain cells, which interferes with the ability of brain cells to communicate with each other and affects the brain’s ability to think, feel or behave normally.
