This appointment can be used to discuss different brands, styles, technologies, and features.
This appointment takes place after you have found the perfect hearing aids. Here, hearing aid maintenance and cleaning techniques will be discussed in detail. We will also practice using the hearing aids until you are confident and self-sufficient. Once the hearing aids are fit and working, they will be fine-tuned to match each individual’s unique hearing needs.
Integrating your new hearing aids into your lifestyle can take some time and practice. The first three months of hearing aid use require active participation in the adjustment process. Getting accustomed to wearing hearing aids everyday can take some time, and the adjustment process is different for everybody. It is normal and expected to request follow-up visits for fine-tuning adjustments to your new hearing aids, especially during the first year. Keeping a simple journal during this adjustment process can make the transition to better hearing easier for both you and your hearing healthcare professional.
The more details you can provide about your new hearing experiences, the easier it will be to tackle areas for improvement. All in all, the best way to take advantage of your new hearing aids is to talk to your hearing healthcare professional! We can discuss what to expect, frequently asked questions, and any listening situation unique to your lifestyle.
