With social distancing becoming a common term this year, it has forced many of us to experience some of the physical effects isolation can have on wellbeing. However, this can be a regular occurrence for those living with hearing difficulties. In a recent podcast with The Harley Street Edit, Adam and Jerusha Shulberg, Senior Audiologists from Cubex, spoke about some of the implications of hearing loss.
In this in-depth discussion with Podcaster, Shradha Nund, they explore several areas a hearing impairment can impact, including cognitive load, working memory, lack of stimulation and the deterioration in wellbeing from becoming socially isolated.
They explore the CALM technique co-founded by Jerusha in the latter part of the conversation – a program they designed to refine audiological health and enhance cognitive wellbeing.
