We all make resolutions for the New Year, and hearing aid wearers might be familiar with these ones!
Have you ever heard the loud, annoying sounds of someone blowing into a microphone? That's pretty much what hearing aid wearers experience on windy days, or even just riding their bike or riding in a convertible. You can imagine how enjoyable this is!
Going back to school is a busy and exciting time for children, parents, and teachers. If you have a child who wears hearing aids or cochlear implants, it can be a bit worrisome too.
Ear Gear has been supplying its customers with hearing aid protection since 2005. Over the years, we have been sent numerous hearing loss stories and they are always unique. As we read through each story, we are in awe of the strength and determination of each individual SuperHEARo with the hearing loss plus the families surrounding those individuals.
You just purchased your brand new hearing aids. They look great. Your audiologist carefully explained how to care for them, how to keep them safe from the family dog and since you wear eyeglasses, mentioned hearing aid clips for glasses. You brought them home without the hearing aid clips for glasses because you thought maybe you should get used to them before purchasing any accessories.
Families of children who wear hearing instruments know all too well the stress and frustration of trying to care for the devices. Active kids can find it tough to be responsible and cautious, and they won’t always remember the procedures and rules you put in place to help protect their instruments. These tips may help to smooth the way.
