1 - Earwax, Poses Risk for Cognitive Decline.
Wax build-up occurs more often in older ears than those of the young.. And when it goes unrecognized, it can pose serious problems for the elderly. The excessive amount [of earwax] can cause hearing loss or ringing in your ears. Some people experience vertigo, which increases the risk of falling, Impacted earwax can be a particular problem for patients with dementia. It exacerbates hearing loss, which can impede communication and worsen aggression and other difficult behaviours.
Goal. We do know about 75% of people living in care and nursing homes have some degree of impaction and most are completely impacted,
2 - Serious weight loss may be a side effect of cholinesterase inhibitors, they also may be responsible for a number of other side effects.
Goal: This is very relevant to patient care because unintentional weight loss in older adults is associated with many adverse outcomes, including increased rates of institutionalization and mortality in older people. We are aware cholinesterase inhibitors can have gastrointestinal side effects along with other problems including bradycardia and other heart problems.
3 - Early memory loss.
Goal: Mental health is the world’s largest economic burden. By sensitively measuring cognitive performance people with problems can be identified earlier, access treatments faster, and stay healthy for longer, improving quality of life and reducing costs.

Our ENT experts welcome you back to S P Care Clinic where we consider it a duty to continue to provide safe, comfortable and quick relief from hearing issues and ear pain at this time. Rigorous Covid-19 protocols include full PPE protection, disinfected clinic rooms to keep us all safe. We are vaccinated and checked on a regular basis for Covid 19 and our temperatures are checked every 24 hrs.
Micro suction is the preferred method of ear wax removal used by ENT (ear nose and throat) consultants. the need for private ear wax removal in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Berkshire has grown with long NHS waiting lists.
S P Care Clinic is led by Mr Davies Consultant Founder & CEO, Our Microsuction ear wax removal clinics are held in Newcastle Under Lyme, Stoke On Trent, Crewe and Berkshire, having blocked ears is an intensely unpleasant experience. It can cause hearing problems, lead to infections and sometimes make you feel dizzy. It’s not surprising that most people want to have it treated as quickly and as safely as possible. ‘Microsuction’ is the safest and most effective way to unblock your ears. Microsuction involves looking down the ear canal with a microscope, which allows us a direct view of the area being cleaned. We are then able to clean out the blockage quickly and effectively using a tiny vacuum cleaner. Once the wax has gone we are able to check your ear for any other problems. You may be asked to use olive oil spray or drops for several days beforehand. This will make the treatment easier for you. Occasionally we may need to use other instruments to remove hard wax. The technique means that we can always see what we are doing and can avoid touching the skin of the sides of the ear canal which makes the process a lot more comfortable.
Our microsuction equipment is the best in it's class, our suction units are designed and manufactured by DeVilBiss Healthcare, who are world leaders in the production of medical devices, for the ENT professional. Occasionally, when microsuction alone is not possible, we use a combination of finer instruments and eardrops; for example, in cases of impacted earwax or removing a foreign body. microsuction earwax removal has a significantly lower risk of causing damage to your eardrum. This is because the procedure is performed under direct vision and avoids the usage of any materials or liquids at high pressure. Once the procedure is complete, patients normally notice an immediate improvement in hearing and reduced ear pain.
We also offer home visits for elderly patients and for patients with illness who can't get into clinic.
