Dealing with hearing loss: You are not alone


hearing healthcareOne issue that may hold you back from dealing with hearing loss: what happens when I get a hearing aid?

Will I know how to use it? Do I have to figure all this stuff out on my own?

Good news: your hearing care professional will help you learn about your new hearing aid, teach you how to use them, and work together with you to see that you get the best hearing possible.

More good news: many people feel that today’s hearing aids are a lot easier to get used to than the technology of the past. But keep in mind that an adjustment period is normal in the beginning. As you get accustomed to using your hearing aids, you will notice that you are having new communication successes in situations where you used to have difficulty.

Your success is based on three things:

  • Appropriate hearing solutions that give you what you need
  • The expertise and involvement of your hearing care professional
  • Your commitment to sticking with your hearing care program
