Cognitive Hearing Loss in Saratoga, CA
Gain Clarity with NeuroTechnology™ from Los Gatos Audiology
When you schedule your initial hearing aid consultation with our audiologist, you are embarking on a journey that will enhance much more than just your hearing. Our experienced team can also help improve your cognitive hearing loss in Saratoga, CA.
Working Memory & Comprehension of Speech
Our working memory serves as a mental blackboard that temporarily – and simultaneously – stores and processes the information we need for a range of complex cognitive tasks. When we participate in conversations, our brain is continuously making connections between our working memory and long-term memory to find meaning in speech.
If we can’t figure out what was said, we can keep holding the spoken information in working memory, erase our mental blackboard, and try again. However, if our cognitive abilities decline or we don’t have enough working memory to store what was heard until we solve the puzzle, understanding is lost.
Our Aural Rehabilitation and Education Plan
In order to help you adapt to your newly restored ability to hear, we enroll our patients in an ongoing auditory rehabilitation and education series as part of your hearing loss medical treatment. This program should be included with any hearing loss treatment plan.
Brain Fitness training is crucial for the well-being of the ‘grey matter’ in our heads. The maxim ‘use it or lose it’ is particularly appropriate for this subject. When embarking on any new task, there is always a period of time where someone may feel inadequate. This is because, with each new task, we must redevelop the neuro-pathways we may never have used, or simply haven’t used in years.
Along with Harvard University, the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, and Yale research programs, our team at Los Gatos Audiology is dedicated to assisting our California population of aging seniors. Using several brain fitness training programs, we stimulate the brain through both audio and visual methods.
Brain fitness training is one of the most thrilling developments in current medical science. With a simple commitment to play ‘games’ on your home computer, iPad, or tablet for 12-15 minutes a day, five days a week, this free eight-week program is designed to help you listen and hear more clearly, sharpen your memory, strengthen your visual acuity, develop a sharper reaction time, and feel more confident in your abilities.
