Social Impact of Hearing Loss in the Aged.
Norris, Michael L.; Cunningham, David R.
Journal of Gerontology, v36 n6 p727-29 Nov 1981
Studied the relationship between progressive hearing loss (presbycusic) hearing patterns and social involvement of the aged. Individuals (N=50) with presbycusic hearing patterns were asked specific questions about their social activities. Results indicated that social involvement was not related significantly to the amount of hearing loss in this population. (Author/JAC)
