Getting your first set of hearing aids is a big step! Just like you do general maintenance on your car (oil change and tire rotation), your hearing aids need similar care. You should be wearing your hearing aids all day, every day.
If you wake up one morning and you feel like you can’t hear out of one ear, do not wait to see if it comes back or not. The sooner you receive treatment, the more likely to reverse or fix the issue.
Ringing in the ears has happened to everyone – maybe it was after a loud concert or party, or maybe during a home renovation.
No one wants to deal with hearing loss – either with themselves or with their loved ones – but how common is hearing loss really? How likely is it that you will have someone in your life who is deaf or hard of hearing?
Hearing aids are a big investment. But if your hearing aid isn’t clean, it may not be functioning at full capacity. Not to mention the device could wear down faster. To maximize the life and functionality of your hearing aid, it should be cared for and maintained properly.
Falls are a major concern for the aging population. In fact, more than 1 in 3 people age 65 or older falls every year according to the National Institute for Aging. For younger people, a fall can result in a bruise or a broken bone.
