“You’ll be with the Audiologist for the life of the hearing aids, so make finding a really good one a priority.”
How and when did you first realize you were experiencing hearing loss?
About 7 years ago. I lost the ability to hear words rather than just sounds.
Where did you first go for information or help? Why?
First, I went to Costco. Later, I returned those hearing aids and shopped various Audiologists.
Based on your experience, do you have suggestions for others on how and where to start? Any other important things for them to consider?
Go online and find a great Audiologist or contact ReSound. I have found the ReSound reps to be helpful and very responsive.
What was your biggest concern about hearing aids? Did that turn out to be true?
What people would think. Now, no one sees the hearing aids from ReSound and I could care less if they do.
How have hearing aids changed your life? How do they help you at your job, in your hobbies or at volunteer activities?
I use streamers on my TVs and I avoid turning up the volume at all.
What would you tell someone who is considering hearing aids?
You’ll be with the Audiologist for the life of the hearing aids, so make finding a really good one a priority.
