In brief: Yes

Between the ages of 70 and 75 most people lose both hearing nerve cells and balance nerve cells.
The degree of loss can vary widely due to genetics. The loss of balance nerves can also explain why falls increase in frequency as we get older. It is important for people with significant hearing loss to get hearing aids as hearing loss is strongly associated with developing dementia and alzheimer's.
