The Importance of Hearing Aid Follow-up Care
Posted by William A. Kent, BC-HIS on February 13, 2015
Similar to when you break a bone and the doctor schedules you for therapy, we schedule you for follow-up care after receiving your first pair of hearing aids. Follow-up care is very important because every patient’s hearing is unique, so we need to ensure we are adjusting and modifying your hearing aids to fit your distinct and on-going needs. Quality follow-up care includes:
Regular Office Visits - It is important to visit our office regularly. A visit could include routine maintenance check-ups or even assessing changes in your hearing abilities. Just like your vision can change over the years, so can your hearing.
Aural Rehabilitation and Counseling - When using hearing aid technology for the first time, sounds and words may be difficult to understand or hear in noisy environments. It can take time for you to adjust so we offer several auditory therapy computer games and personal counseling to help your through this process.
- Accidents can sometimes occur, causing your hearing aids to work improperly. Should that unfortunate situation occur, we offer warranty plans and also have options to get your hearing aids repaired
Before you leave the office after each visit, we make sure your hearing devices are working properly in a variety of situations and settings. With how significant follow-up care is, it is important to note that this service may not be offered routinely with online or large retail stores. That is why it’s important to research to see what follow-up care is included, because one of the most important things about hearing aids is what comes after the purchase.
We want to help you with this step and make sure you are hearing to your full potential. Call or come into our office today to find out more about the thorough follow-up care we will provide you or your loved one.
