Hearing loss affects 1 of every 5 people and is strongly linked to loneliness. Considered as hazardous as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, strong feelings of loneliness raise the risk of developing depressions, dementia, and early death.
Hearing loss often comes with aging. But scientists have begun to recognize the potential harms of this condition. Our deaf wellness center in New York is no stranger to the fact that hearing loss does more than inconvenience people.
Simply getting a hearing aid is not enough to make a senior feel loved and welcomed. However, having people who understand what they are going through does just that. Deaf Wellness and Recreation Center works to provide the hard-of-hearing with the support and resources they need to deal with hearing loss and continue living independently.
Our adult day services in Brooklyn, New York focus on helping deaf and blind seniors and how to contribute to the improvement of their quality of life. A blind or deaf patient can enjoy their treatment while surrounded by people and professionals who have their back.
