Hearing aids….Confused? We make things clear and simple.
Hearing aids have changed. It’s exciting to be able to offer our clients some amazing technology.
See these brief videos from a couple of leading manufacturers demonstrating the benefits of the latest technology in hearing devices.
Once you have selected your hearing aids after an evaluation, we will program them, based on a prescription, to meet your hearing needs. You will be shown how to use them effectively, how to manage them, and how to care for them.
When you put the hearing devices in for the first time, you may have different emotions about the sounds you hear. This is normal and to be expected. The goal of the hearing aid is to make everyday sounds audible and comfortable, but the sound you hear should be clear and pleasant. Small changes can be made to the hearing aids at your first fitting if there are things that you feel should be adjusted right away. We will often test the hearing devices at fitting to ensure they are giving you enough sound where you need it.
Your hearing aid fitting is only a starting place; other changes to customise the hearing device to your liking may need to take place over a few appointments, as you wear the hearing aids in more situations and adapt to all the new sounds you are hearing.
Attitude is one important key to success with hearing aids. In fact there are hearing device studies that have shown that people who have a positive attitude do better with hearing aids. If you, as well as your spouse, or family, approach your hearing aid fitting with a positive outlook you will have a much better listening experience more quickly. Keep in mind that it may take some time to get used to the sounds you were missing, and by working closely with us, you will get the most out of your new hearing devices.
