When you first acquired your hearing devices, what were your expectations? Were they meant to enhance your ability to watch TV, socialise, or participate in activities in large settings such as places of worship, meetings or restaurants? It’s important to reflect on these initial goals and assess whether your hearing aids are meeting your needs.
If you find yourself struggling in certain situations, it’s crucial to determine whether the issue lies with your hearing aids or if your expectations were in line with what hearing aids can provide you. Are you wearing your hearing aids regularly? Consistent usage plays a significant role in maximising the benefits of your devices. If you’re not wearing them as recommended, it could be a contributing factor to your difficulties.
It’s also essential to consider whether your needs have changed over time. Perhaps you were once primarily staying at home but are now more socially active. If this is the case, your hearing aids may need to be adjusted to accommodate your new lifestyle.
Speaking of adjustments, when was the last time your hearing aids were fine-tuned? Regular visits to your audiologist are crucial for ensuring optimal performance. We recommend scheduling appointments 2-3 times a year, similar to how you would take your car for regular servicing. These check-ins and tune-ups help prevent potential issues and ensure that your hearing aids are functioning optimally throughout the year.
It’s worth noting that your hearing abilities may change over time. Factors such as age, exposure to loud noises, or certain medical conditions can impact your hearing. Regular visits to your audiologist allow them to monitor any changes and make necessary adjustments to your devices.
It is also very important to consider that hearing aids are only part of a quality hearing solution, factors such as communication tactics, auditory training as well as regular use may take part in determining your outcome.
