Alzheimer's and Hearing: An Overview

People with Alzheimer's disease may have normal hearing, but they can lose their ability to interpret what they hear accurately. This may result in confusion or over-stimulation.
 

Alzheimer's and Hearing: Suggestions

Suggestions for dealing with hearing issues as Alzheimer's progresses include:
 
  • Avoid excessive noise in the home such as having the stereo and the TV on at the same time.
 
  • Be sensitive to the amount of noise going on outside, and close windows or doors, if necessary.
 
  • Avoid large gatherings of people in the home if the person with Alzheimer's disease shows signs of agitation or distress in crowds.
 
  • Check hearing aid batteries and functioning frequently.
