Adapting To A Hearing Aid

June 23, 2017 CaptionCall 5 comments



Getting used to using a hearing aid can be difficult?  That’s why ‘’ 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.

CaptionCall is an ambassador for hearing health and an advocate for people with hearing loss.  CaptionCall encourages people everywhere to actively manage their hearing health through regular hearing evaluations, and to seek early treatment when hearing loss is identified.  CaptionCall is committed to helping people with hearing loss stay socially engaged for a longer, happier, healthier life.

  1. I could not function in my world without Caption Call. I’m still working at my real estate office, taking messages and meeting customers, thanks to my phone. I am an advocate for Caption Call.

  2. I have caption on my home phone and cell, it does help but the delay so bad most of the time. when taking business calls
    I’m left feeling incompetent to those I’m talking to. After the call is over I have to go over the conversation on the screen to get a better understanding of what was said:(

  3. Your unit works good when I am sitting in the chair next to it, but the installer, it’s been a good while – like over a year, said he could not hook it up so I got voice mails on it and I cannot hear nor understand the voice mail messages on my ATT phone line. I really thought when I got this unit that I would be able to get my voice mails in print – not so.
    So, it works but it doesn’t work for me. It’s just another telephone in my house because all my voice mail comes in on my other phone.

  4. In the article, Adapting To A Hearing Aid, why is the font so ‘light’?? And the font so small in this Comment box?? Another word descriptor would be ‘weak’. Makes reading a bit difficult — and I have good eyesight…

  5. I wish my phone did have answering machine. I have noticed volume is lower to those listening to me. So is that a problem with the phone. Otherwise I do like the closed captioning cause sometimes I take my hearing aides out when extreme sweating.
