Charity calls for action to improve access to hearing technologies for older adults

The Ear Foundation has called for immediate improvements in treating adults aged over 65 with hearing loss to avoid dementia, depression and reduce the risk of falls.

Losing the ability to communicate through hearing loss is one of the least recognised public health issues of our time, says The Ear Foundation's chief executive Sue Archbold on the launch of the charity's Bending the Spend Report.
