The process of adjusting to your hearing aids can take some time, but rest assured that at Sound Care Audiology, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
Our team will work with you during your hearing aid fitting to adjust your devices in such a way that enhances your specific daily activities. Once you step foot outside of our office, the acclimation process begins! Keep in mind that it may take your brain some time to relearn how to process the sounds you were missing, and although things may seem odd at first, you will slowly adjust to this new way of hearing.
Some of our patients prefer to gradually wear their hearing aids for longer periods of time each day, as this gentle acclimation is easier for them to work with. Others jump right in and want to wear their devices full-time in order to get the most out of their new purchase. Some hearing aids allow us to fit you at a slightly softer level than you need and automatically increase the level a fraction of a deciBel per day over several weeks. No matter which option feels right for you, the team at Sound Care Audiology will always be here to answer your questions.
After you get some experience with the hearing aids, you may find that in certain situations you aren’t hearing quite as well as you would like. It’s important for you to let us know so that we can fine-tune your devices accordingly.
