Care and maintenance of hearing aids
When someone purchases hearing aids, it is important that they learn how to take care of them. Dunn Audiology’s counselling will make sure all patients feel comfortable with the maintenance of their hearing aids. If questions arise after leaving the appointment, then all patients are welcome to come back to the clinic for more guidance.
In addition to using hearing aids, there are multiple strategies that can be used to enhance hearing in difficult listening environments. Some possible strategies include:
- Face to face communication
- Minimizing background noise when possible
- Maximizing best lighting possible to help with speech reading (lip reading)
- Do not cover mouth with hands
Aural Rehabilitation classes will be offered in the near future. During these group sessions, your hearing loss, hearing aid maintenance, and communication strategies will all be discussed. Contact Dunn Audiology for more information!
