Your support can mean the world
When your loved ones can hear better, they can understand you better. They can hear your words and truly appreciate your range of expressions and tones. Hearing can become an issue with age, but it shouldn’t be an issue that keeps us from connecting.
Support your loved ones
- in getting their hearing tested
- in going to the hearing care specialist and
- in using their new hearing aids.
Your support is essential for the process, because research shows people are more likely to get hearing aids if they are not going to the hearing care specialist alone. Also, people are more likely to use their hearing aids if someone close to them supports them in the adaptation period.*
