Getting Your Hearing Aid

After your hearing evaluation, you will be able to choose the hearing aid best for you. The hearing specialist will assist you in selecting one based upon your preferences.

The hearing aid will have to be programmed based on the prescription that resulted from the evaluation. This will ensure the device works to help you hear sounds clearly.

After programming, the hearing specialist will review the correct way to use the device. You’ll need to learn how to turn it on and off, how to place it on your ear and take it off, and the best way to clean it. Many people bring their loved ones with them to this appointment to help with the device at home.

What to Know When Using a Hearing Aid

When you first start using a hearing aid, you may feel indifferent about it. Sounds will be different, which can make you feel happy, but uncomfortable. You will be able to hear them, but they won’t sound like they normally do to you because you’ve been dealing with hearing problems. It will take some time to get used to this new way of hearing.

It’s best to use the hearing aid as much as possible when you first get it. Hearing sounds differently than you’re used to is normal, but if the device feels uncomfortable, it needs an adjustment. The hearing specialist can help you with this, so be sure to make an appointment.

Follow Up Appointment

You will have a follow up appointment to assess how you’re liking the hearing aid. You will have to answer questions about how well you’re hearing. Please answer them as honest as possible, so adjustments can be made depending on what you need. It can take a few adjustments before finding the perfect setting for you. It’s important to use your hearing aid as much as possible during this time, so you know what to tell the hearing professional for the adjustments.

Try to remain positive when you first get a hearing aid. Frustration is common, but the process of customizing a device is essential to your hearing success.

As you go through the emotions of using a hearing aid, remember to accept support from your loved ones. They care about you and want to help you through this, so you can improve the quality of your life.
