Last time we discussed cost as a common objection to hearing aids. Another very common one is appearance. I can’t count the number of times I have heard some version of, “Hearing aids will make me look old.”
Here is something to consider: the effects of hearing loss are often more noticeable than a hearing aid. In fact, it is often family and friends that notice hearing loss first because hearing typically decreases gradually enought that we may not realize it ourselves. Missing conversation and continually asking for repetition can be very frustrating for everyone involved.
Hearing aids are also much smaller than they used to be, with models over the ear and in the ear that are nearly invisible. Combine that with the fact that many people now wear ear level devices for Bluetooth phone connectivity and not many will give your hearing aids a second glance, if they notice at all.
With today’s technology you should have no problem finding a model that’s right for you. For more information please contact one of our two location and join us next time for more discussion on the common objections to hearing aids.
