Hearing Aid Fitting
Once you have selected your hearing aids after an evaluation, we will program them to meet your hearing needs. We will explain how to use the devices, how to put them in the ear and how to remove them, how to change batteries and how to care for and clean the devices. We also recommend that you bring family members or close friends to the hearing aid fitting so they can help remember all the information that is given and be a support to you.
When you put the hearing aids in for the first time, you may have different emotions about the sounds you hear. This is normal and to be expected. The goal of the hearing aid is to make everyday sounds audible and comfortable, but the sound you hear should be clear and pleasant. Small changes can be made to the hearing aids at your first fitting if there are things that you feel should be adjusted right away.
Your hearing aid fitting is only a starting place; other changes to customize the hearing to your liking may need to take place over a few appointments, as you wear the hearing aids in more situations and adapt to all the new sounds you are hearing. Keep in mind that it may take some time to get used to the sounds you were missing, and by working closely with us at Global Hearing Aids, you will get the most out of your new hearing aids. Hearing loss is usually gradual and learning to hear properly is a process – not a quick fix. Follow-up appointments are crucial to ensuring your success!
