Learn More About Improving Your Hearing Loss & Cognitive Function in Hawaii
Stay Sharp with NeuroTechnology™ from Family Hearing Center
When you schedule your initial hearing consultation with our board-certified hearing aid specialists, you are embarking on a journey that can improve much more than your hearing. Our experienced team can help improve both your hearing loss and cognitive function in Hawaii.
Working Memory & Speech Comprehension
Our working memory serves like 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 continually makes a connection 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 information we heard 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 keep what was heard available until we solve the puzzle, understanding is lost.
Aural Rehabilitation and Education Series
In order to help you adapt to your restored hearing ability, we enroll our patients in an ongoing auditory rehabilitation and education series as part of your medical treatment of hearing loss. This program, approved by Dr. Darrow, 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 appropriate for this subject specifically. 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 Family Hearing Center is dedicated to assisting our Hawaii population of aging seniors. Using multiple 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, 5 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.
