Maximize the benefits of your Hearing Aid

How to get the most from your hearing aid

 

These are some useful tips to help you get the most from your hearing aid.

  1. Wax and moisture are the enemies of the hearing aid!  Make sure you clean the device at least once a month as your hearing aid provider shows you.  If you can, take it to your provider for a cleaning every six months.

 

  1. Wear the hearing aid as much as possible, especially in the beginning. The human body is designed to adapt to anything, as long as it is consistent.  That means you have to wear it every day for at least a few hours to let your brain and body learn to “hear in a new way”.

 

 

  1. Store the device in a safe, dry place away from moisture, pets and heat. I recommend in a closed container in your night stand or bedside table.  The bathroom is the worst place to keep your hearing aid because of the risk of humidity and moisture to the electronics.

 

  1. Don’t expect your hearing to be “back to normal”. Hearing aids are only aids to the hearing loss you have, they are not corrective and only work when you wear them.
