Hearing Changes in Aging People with Mental Retardation


Description:

People who have developmental disabilities are not only living productive lives within communities across the country, but they are also living longer. Like others who reach their later years, older people with developmental disabilites are at risk of acquiring a number of age-related chronic conditions. One of the more common conditions among older adults is hearing loss. Regular hearing evaluations are important to identify losses in hearing that make it difficult for older adults to communicate in work, social, and interpersonal situations.

This fact sheet provides answers to frequently asked questions about age-related hearing loss, especially for people with developmental disabilities. It contains the information that families and service providers need to identify possible hearing loss and to support older adults who have this condition. Item number: 500.014
