We use our ears on a daily basis to take in the sounds surrounding our everyday life. However, over time our senses can begin to deteriorate making it difficult to hear. When this occurs, hearing aids Cambridge are often needed to restore your hearing, yet adjusting to them isn’t always as easy as you first anticipate. Subsequently, the professional audiologists here at the Hearing Healthcare Centre have compiled a few tips and advice on how to adapt to using your new hearing aid.
When you first get your new hearing aid try and take it slowly. Here at the Hearing Healthcare Centre we would recommend that you start wearing your hearing aid around your home before venturing outdoors into busier environments.
Try wearing your hearing aid with the TV on, or even just when you’re pottering around. Some noises may seem a lot crisper like the sound of running water, or someone mooching around upstairs, yet other sounds may be loud and harsh on your ears to begin with. It is always worth bearing in mind that it will take your ears and brain time to adjust to this new, clearer hearing.
Now you have the appropriate apparatus to hear clearly, you may find that you have to retrain your brain to interpret the sounds being heard. You can do this yourself at home, or you can get a LACE training disc. LACE stands for Listening and Communication Enhancement and is a training disc that you can complete in the comfort of your own home to train your brain to listen and interpret the new sounds you are experiencing.
Adjusting to the physical aspects of hearing aids Cambridge should be discussed with your consultant here at Hearing Healthcare Centre. We are a friendly team and appreciate that you may have queries or concerns regarding your new disability aids. If you would like further information, feel free to get in touch on 01223 360 700.
