Living with hearing loss means a lot more than just not being able to hear as well as you once did. It turns socializing into a chore, simple conversations into misunderstandings, and formerly enjoyable events into activities you would rather avoid. The more you withdraw from life the greater your susceptibility to developing depression.
For over a decade, ThirdAge has been a leading source of information for "boomer and beyond" women. Our writers cover what means most to women 50+: the empty nest, living solo, finding love, coping with caregiving, and remaking their lives the way they want them to be. We also feature the latest approaches to brain fitness, diet, exercise, and age-related health conditions.
