When wearing the new hearing aids you will suddenly hear many sounds you haven’t heard either before or in a very long time. You will have to become like a detective, finding out the source of these new sounds. You can either do this on your own or get the help of a loved one or friend. Just some simple noises in your own home may take some time to get used to.
Wear your hearing aids as long as you feel comfortable doing so. Make sure you try the hearing aids out in ALL situations. You are the judge when you want to wear them or not. Sometimes you don’t want to hear the background noise at a restaurant or social gathering. Other times, while enjoying a hobby, working or while engaging conversation you will find them irreplaceable. Just make sure you remove them before your morning shower!
Keep your follow up appointments with the examining Avada Hearing Care provider. Explain to them if you are having trouble adjusting to loud sounds. They will be able to adjust your hearing aids to protect you from overly loud sounds and you will still be able to hear faint speech.
Be a patient-patient. Keep all your follow up appointments whether you believe you need them or not. Be positive. Avada Audiology & Hearing Care helps thousands adjust to their new hearing aids and hearing loss–we will help you too!
