Falls Prevention - Dizziness and balance issues are often directly related to hearing health * additionally, since people rely on sound for orientation in the environment, a person may not be as quickly aware of a potentially hazardous situation when hearing is decreased * therefore, proper hearing health and hearing loss management are important components of falls prevention
