Yay! You got hearing aids! Now you are living free and can hear absolutely everything. As much as we wish this to be true there are some important things you should know about making the best of your hearing aid experience.
- Your hearing aids are expensive and the last thing you want is for them to not be working their best. You should regularly clean and check your hearing aids to make sure they last longer and function properly.
- Keep visiting a hearing care professional. There is only so much you can do to make sure your hearing aid is working at its best. The people with the skills necessary to maximize your hearing aid experience are hearing care professionals. Make regular visits to a hearing care professional after buying hearing aids so that they can optimize your hearing aid experience.
- Get a CaptionCall phone! There is only so much a hearing aid can do when it comes to talking on the phone. A CaptionCall phone will make sure your hearing loss doesn’t get in the way of keeping in touch with friends and family.
- Wear your hearing aids! This might seem weird to have to say but it’s true. Many times after people buy their hearing aids they will get frustrated during the adjustment period and start taking them out. It’s important to keep going! It can sometimes feel overwhelming as you adjust to your hearing aids but be patient. You will find the effort to be more than worth it.
The key to treating your hearing loss is being proactive. Just having the hearing aid often isn’t enough. Follow these steps and you will make sure your hearing loss journey is a successful one.
