Getting used to using a hearing aid can be difficult? That’s why ‘Peoplehearingbetter.com’ put together this list of 3 very important things to remember when it comes to handling your brand-new hearing device.
First and foremost, take it slow and steady. Your ears will not adjust immediately to the new device. It could take anywhere from 30 to 90 days for your body to get used to them.
Second, get it right. If something about your hearing aids seems just a little off, like they aren’t fitting correctly or they feel uncomfortable, visit your hearing care professional right away. They are prepared to help you and the last thing you want is for the device to not feel good in your ear.
Third, have realistic expectations. Treating your hearing loss is a process. Do not expect to have all of your problems solved after coming home from the audiologist.
Remember, it takes time to adjust, but if you exercise a little persistence and patience, you will reap the benefits associated with a higher level of sound that hearing aids can offer.
