Hearing Aid Fitting
When you come to Coastal Hearing Care, we will take the utmost care to give you a perfect hearing aid solution to meet your needs. After you receive a hearing evaluation, you will be asked to choose the best type of hearing aid to suit you. Once you decide on your hearing aid, we will program it to fit your hearing prescription.
At this point in the fitting process, there are things we will show or discuss with you. If you are concerned about remembering them, feel free to bring a friend or loved one with you to help. These items will include:
- How to use your hearing aids
- How to place them in your ears or remove them properly
- How to clean them
- How to replace the batteries or charge them if they are rechargeable
- How to store them properly when not wearing them
When you place new hearing aids in your ears for the first time, the sounds you hear may sound strange for a bit. Your brain needs to reacquaint you with the sounds you are now hearing. If there are any issues you feel need addressing we can make small adjustments to your hearing aid settings. But we prefer you wear them for a while before changing anything because our settings are a direct result of your hearing test prescription.
It also helps to keep a positive attitude about wearing hearing aids. People who feel good about wearing them will often have a more positive experience than someone who is not happy about having to wear them. Hearing aids can make a great improvement in your life, and Coastal Hearing Care is determined to do everything we can to make your new hearing aids a positive change in your life.
