“As soon as you start having difficulty hearing, get testing by a medical specialist.”
How and when did you first realize you were experiencing hearing loss?
10 years ago, I just couldn’t hear as well as those around me. I had difficulty holding a conversation both at work and at home.
Based on your experience, do you have suggestions for others on how and where to start? Any other important things for them to consider?
As soon as you start having difficulty hearing, get testing by a medical specialist.
What was your biggest concern about hearing aids? Did that turn out to be true?
I was concerned that they wouldn’t work properly. I was right. I could not discern the difference between wearing them and not wearing them. Over a period of about 10 years, I had 2 different versions of hearing aids. They just didn’t increase my hearing ability. When I bought my current set, which are ReSound hearing aids, they worked perfectly. I was then able to hear things I never could hear before. Plus, the model I have streams thru the TV and my iPhone. This solved all my hearing related problems.
What would you tell someone who is considering hearing aids?
Be sure to understand all the features and functions before choosing a model.s.
