Hearing loss is a frustrating condition to live with, but digital hearing aids can make all the difference. The newest hearing aids contain more sophisticated technology than a smartphone, so it’s not surprising that they need a little special care to prolong their life and ensure that they stay in great working order.
Here at Hidden Hearing, we know that it can be overwhelming to be diagnosed with a hearing loss and to begin wearing hearing aids. For this reason, we offer a comprehensive maintenance and check up service, so we can provide all the help and support you need to get used to living with your new devices.
How To Care For Your Hearing Aid
We’ll show you how to care for your hearing aid, and when you attend follow up appointments, we’ll service it for you and deal with any problems. Here are some top tips to help you adjust to your new hearing aids with ease:
1. Become familiar with your hearing aid. Get to know your hearing aid so that you are familiar with all of the parts and know what they do. You should be able to change batteries and tubes by yourself, but we can show you how to do this at your regular check up appointments.
2. Prioritise cleaning. Daily cleaning is a vital part of your hearing aid care routine, and you should use the kit that your audiologist recommends. Cleaning cloths and a storage case will help you to keep your hearing aids clean and dry at all times, and to keep them away from small children and animals when you are not wearing them.
3. Invest in a dehumidifier. Colder weather and moisture can damage hearing aids, so it’s a great idea to use a dehumidifier to dry them thoroughly and ensure that they are not left wet inside. Hearing aid dehumidifiers are small and efficient, so they are easily transported when you’re travelling, and are straightforward to use.
4. Organise yourself to make life easier. Taking spare batteries with you when you’re away or think they may need changing will save you a lot of hassle. Batteries can drain much more quickly in cold weather, so don’t be caught out! Keeping your hearing aids in the same place every night will ensure that you know where they are every morning, and this easy tip will save you a lot of stress.
