People who use hearing aids often say that these small devices are one of the best investments they’ve ever made. Learn more about how we can help you keep your devices in proper working order.
Hearing Aid Fittings and Programming
Hearing aids are a type of fine machinery and they may require some upkeep from time to time. In order to get the most out of your hearing aids, your hearing aids will need to be appropriately fit and adjusted. Along with our professional recommendations, your patience and persistence are key in utilizing your devices to their fullest potential.
During a hearing aid fitting and programming appointment, the team at Hear Your Life will calibrate your devices to meet your specific needs, including:
- Your lifestyle needs and personal preferences
- The type of hearing loss you have
- The extent of your hearing loss
A combination of these factors will determine exactly how your devices are adjusted. We rely on your feedback to let us know how your hearing aids are working for you.
After Your Hearing Aid Fitting
We’ll give you all the information and tools needed to excel with your devices from day one, including:
- Tips on how to clean and care for them
- How to replace their batteries
- How to properly store them
If your hearing aids come equipped with Bluetooth connectivity or other advanced features, our team will ensure that you feel comfortable taking advantage of all the features your device has to offer.
Remember, it can take some time to get used to the way the world sounds with your hearing aids, so it’s best to take a slow and steady approach. Many of our patients wear their hearing aids for longer periods of time each day until they’ve fully adjusted while others are so excited that they use their devices full-time from the start. At Hear Your Life we recommend that you do whatever feels most comfortable for you, but remember that our staff is always here to answer any questions and offer support along the way.
Hearing Aids are Designed for Long-Term Performance
We recommend scheduling follow-up visits during the first few weeks after receiving your hearing aids, and these visits along with regular maintenance and routine evaluations will help to keep your hearing healthy for years to come. The keys to your success rest in your patience while acclimating to your hearing aids and making sure that you communicate your needs so that we can calibrate your devices to achieve optimum performance.
