Hearing aids and glasses. Can they really work well together or are they forever like oil and water? From what we understand, this is a common question that audiologists receive when fitting their patients with new hearing instruments. The answer is YES, hearing aids and glasses can be worn together, and actually be a comfortable experience.
Since 2005, we've been selling hearing aid protection and have heard numerous stories from our customers. They frequently write in to tell us how Ear Gear has saved their hearing instrument's life, protected it at the beach, while golfing, and more. Ear Gear takes the beating while your hearing aid stays safe from sweat, dirt, moisture, loss and wind noise.
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!
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.
When our loved ones reach the point in their lives where a nursing home is needed, it can bring numerous concerns. We hope that their nutrition is being looked after, safety is the toppriority, and that every one of their needs is being acknowledged including maintenance of hearing aids, making sure that they're worn every day and don't get lost.
There’s no sugarcoating the issue: Americans are getting old. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that people age 65 or older made up nearly 15 percent of the population in 2014, and in Canada, people 65 and older outnumbered those 15 and under in 2015. As an audiologist or as someone in the hearing instrument profession, it may be apparent to you that seniors represent (or can represent) a growing portion of your client base. Being aware of common challenges they face with hearing aids helps you better serve them, so let’s look at some of these issues.
