During a hearing aid fitting and programming appointment, the team at Hear On the Shore will calibrate your devices to meet your specific needs. The type of hearing loss, extent of hearing loss as well as your lifestyle will determine exactly how your devices are adjusted. We rely on your feedback to let us know how your hearing aids are working for you.
Remember, it can take some time to get used to the way the world sounds with your hearing aids, so it’s best to take a slow and steady approach. Many of our patients wear their hearing aids for longer periods of time each day until they’ve fully adjusted while others are so excited that they use their devices full-time from the start. At Hear On the Shore we recommend that you do whatever feels most comfortable for you, but remember that our staff is always here to answer any questions and offer support along the way.
We recommend scheduling follow-up visits during the first few weeks after receiving your hearing aids, and these visits along with regular maintenance and routine evaluations will help to keep your hearing healthy for years to come. The keys to your success rest in your patience while acclimating to your hearing aids and making sure that you communicate your needs so that we can calibrate your devices to achieve optimum performance.
Our team is experienced in handling a variety of hearing aid repairs and in most cases can complete the necessary work in our office on the day you bring them in. We will take the time to inspect and diagnose the problem, and using state-of-the-art tools can bring your device back to life so you can get on with your day! However, some situations may require more than we can address in our office, and in this instance we are happy to send your hearing aid to the manufacturer for repair.
Rest assured, however, that our dedicated team will do everything we can to make this process as painless as possible. We’ll discuss your options, keep you updated on timelines, and may offer some loaner hearing aids for the time being. We’ll do everything we can to get you back on the path to better hearing quickly.
