The Link Between our Senses and Dementia

Studies by Piers Dawes and Asri Maharan have shown that wearing hearing aids, or/and having surgery to improve eyesight can positively affect memory.

A study of more than 5000 people, showed cataract surgery was found to halve the rate of cognitive decline.

Wearing hearing aids had an even bigger impact, improving memory and thinking skills by more than 75 percent.
