Hearing aid discussion :- Conversation about solutions. Including monauralvs binaural, type and style, costs involved
Fitting:- A one hour appointment to program an initial setting into the aid(s) and teach you how to use it. Revisit goals and create a tailored plan of care.
Follow up appointments:- A series of visits to collect feedback from you about your experiences and begin to execute the plan of care. We will help you to hear better and achieve your goals.
Check ups :- A six monthly 15 minute appointment to clean and check aids. Check ear health and make minor adjustments.
Re-assessments:- Periodic retests to monitor hearing levels and ensure the aids are performing at their best. Revisit lifestyle, as things change. We would expect a person to get 3 1/2 – 5 years good use from an aid if looked after. Some will achieve more, some less. Our aim is to help you hear as well as you are able to.
