Hearing Loss Treatment by DeafHear’s Hearing Aid Service

What to expect when you first start to wear Hearing Aids
DeafHear’s Hearing Aid Service

About DeafHear’s Hearing Aid ServiceOnce you have completed your hearing assessment and it has been agreed that hearing aids are required, it is a good idea to start thinking about wearing hearing aids and about how they can benefit you in your daily life.

 

 

When your new hearing aids are ready for you, here is what to expect:

  • Your audiologist will usually use computer software to programme and customise the performance of your hearing aids so that they are finely adjusted to your hearing loss.

  • The audiologist will show you how to insert and remove your hearing aids, how to clean and care for them, and how to replace the batteries.

  • The audiologist will discuss with you how to start using other devices like telephones, mobiles, TVs, radios with your hearing aids, if appropriate.

  • The audiologist will also discuss your rehabilitation and the likely adjustment process you will experience. Some people are able to wear their hearing aids full time from the first day. Others however, need a longer period of adjustment and this is discussed on an individual basis.

The audiologist may suggest programming your hearing instruments using special settings for the first-time users. Then over a period of time, your hearing instruments will be adjusted to capture more sounds as you adjust.

It really helps to keep a track of how well you are doing adjusting to your new hearing instruments and how they work for you in various situations. Your audiologist will offer follow-up visits to discuss how you are progressing and also to make any fine adjustments to your hearing aids which will improve your hearing experience and abilities further

Once you’ve made the transition to wearing your new hearing aids, this will help improve your quality of life and that of others around you, helping you be fully engaged in what life has to offer.
