Hearing aids are designed for long-term performance but with all fine machinery, hearing aids require some upkeep from time to time.
Learn more about how we can help you keep your devices in proper working order.
Hearing Aid Fittings and Programming
People who use hearing aids often say that these small devices are one of the best investments they’ve ever made. To get the most out of your purchase, your hearing aids will need to be appropriately fit and adjusted.
During a hearing aid fitting and programming appointment, the team at Second Chance Hearing Inc will match your prescription to meet your specific needs. We rely on your feedback to let us know how your hearing aids are working for you.
We’ll be sure to give you all the information and tools needed to excel with your devices from day one, including tips on:
- How to clean and care for them
- How to replace their batteries
- How to store your hearing aids properly
If your hearing aids come equipped with Bluetooth connectivity or other advanced features, our team will ensure that you feel comfortable taking advantage of everything your device has to offer.
We offer a walk in clinic on Mondays from 10:00am to 12:00pm to assist with cleanings and repairs. If Monday is a holiday, we will have the walk in clinic on Tuesday.
The repair may require more than we can address in our office, and in this instance, we are happy to send your hearing aid to the manufacturer for repair.
Hearing Aid Fittings & Follow Up Care
During the initial fitting of your hearing aids, you will be placed in front of a machine called the AudioScan Verifit. This is the only way an Audiologist can determine if your hearing aids have the proper prescription based on the hearing test results and your listening needs. There are also other machines on the market for this type of verification measure.
You will be counseled on proper care and maintenance of your hearing aids. You will leave the office knowing how to insert and remove the hearing aids and replace batteries.
Follow up Care
You will be scheduled to return to the practice every 1-2 weeks after the initial fitting. This is important to determine your success with the hearing aids and determine if further adjustments or support are needed.
Once the fitting and follow up processes have been completed, we will schedule routine visits for hearing aid cleaning and follow up care.
