Before an Audiologist makes a recommendation on hearing aids, you will be required to undertake a full hearing assessment to ensure that your hearing loss is suitable for amplification and that any medical concerns have been addressed.
Hearing aids are highly sophisticated medical and communication instruments. They facilitate hearing clarity and enable one to maintain active participation in all aspects of communication, including family, social, sporting and recreational activities.
The physical, mental and emotional health benefits of maintaining strong, active, social and familial interactions throughout all stages of life has been scientifically proven. Our hearing plays a crucial role in our capacity to engage with those around us. As our hearing changes, hearing aids play a vital role in sustaining one’s lifestyle and keeping us connected to those aspects of life we are not yet ready to let go of.
