In brief: Usually unrelated

Dementia by itself does not cause hearing loss.
However, hearing loss can lead to some symptoms that are similar to dementia caused symtoms.

In brief: Not common

Hearing loss is common in the same group of age but is not caused by the dementia unless the pt had encephalitis.
It is likely a coindicende with sensorineural herring loss.
