Hearing loss is a tricky condition to get to grips with, and finding a hearing aid that works for you can be challenging. However, once you have found the best device to suit your hearing loss and your lifestyle, you may find yourself eagerly awaiting delivery of your life changing gift to yourself!
Here at Priority Hearing Group, we have a full line of hearing aid manufacturers and technology available to try. Our experienced Hearing Providers will help you to identify the best option for you. Some of our hearing aids are invisible to others as they sit right inside the ear canal, so if you are worried about the look of hearing aids, you may be pleasantly surprised.
Using Your New Hearing Aids during the Holidays:
If you or a loved one needs a hearing aid, the holiday season is a great opportunity to give or receive a gift that will really make a difference. A hearing aid can enable you to make the most of every moment, and can help to prevent conditions such as depression and dementia that are related to hearing loss.
We recommend the following if you are getting used to a new hearing aid at any time; especially during the Holiday Season:
Talk to others. Explain to your family and friends that you will be trying new hearing aids and may need practice to get the settings right. They will be prepared for you to take extra time and will understand if you miss things or need to take time out of the conversation to adjust your devices for a better hearing experience; many of today’s digital devices are self-adjusting!
Explore your settings. Are you aware of all the ways in which your hearing aids can enhance your hearing experience? Modern hearing aids are complex digital devices that can adjust to different environments and volume levels, and some can be controlled using a smartphone app. This is great news, learning how to get the best from your hearing aid is a longer process, so give yourself plenty of time to get used to it.
Establish a routine. Holidays are often a time of year for spontaneity and disrupted routines. If you can develop a routine for your hearing aid care, this will help you to keep the devices safe and ensure that they function to the best of their ability for longer. Having a safe place to keep them at night, preferably in a hearing aid case or a dehumidifier that will keep them dry and moisture free, will be the best way to avoid damage or loss.
