Myth Monday: My friend doesn’t like their hearing aids, so I won’t like it either.
Hearing loss affects people of all ages and all walks of life. Approximately 3 million Canadians suffer from hearing loss – that is 1 out of 10 people! Even though hearing loss is one of the most common health conditions that affect aging adults, there are many myths and misunderstandings about it.
For this Myth Monday, we will be touching on the misconception that just because your friend doesn’t like their hearing aid, does not mean that you will not like hearing aids either.
Your friend has a different hearing loss and lifestyle than you do. Sometimes people have the hearing aids programmed incorrectly, or they chose the wrong hearing aid. Some find that hearing aids “do not make a difference” or they are “too much of a hassle” with needing to change batteries or cleaning procedures – when that happens, people often give up and the hearing aids get placed in the drawer and stay there. That’s not true! Modern hearing aids are easy to clean and maintain, and some models even lets you recharge them overnight, when you’re not using them!
We have many options to make your experience much better than the rumors suggest. Talk to us about the trouble you are experiencing, and we will work with you to find a solution that will make you fall in love with your hearing aids.
