Living with hearing aids

Hearing aids have transformed the lives of countless individuals, offering the gift of improved hearing and enhanced communication. At Nantwich Hearing Centre, we understand that living with hearing aids is a journey, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. Our aftercare services are designed to ensure you experience the full benefits of your hearing aids.

Living with Hearing Aids: A Life Enriched by Sound

During your fitting appointment and the regular follow up’s, we will provide you with all the information you will need to adjust to life with hearing aids. However if you need a reminder then you will find lots of information here.

A ‘Sound’ Investment

Hearing aids are not merely devices; they are gateways to a richer, more engaging life. Your hearing aids are a significant investment. Whilst the latest devices are small and discreet they contain powerful technology and it is important to look after them properly.

Helpful Tips

  1. Make sure your hearing aids are covered on your home insurance. Contact your home contents insurer to ensure they are covered on your existing insurance or to arrange cover.
  2. Make putting your hearing aids on in the morning part of your daily morning routine. Just like getting dressed or  putting on your glasses!  Wearing your hearing aids should quickly become second nature.
  3. It may be challenging at first but wear your hearing aids for as long as possible every day. It is important to wear them in lots of different environments and situations and to take note of how you are hearing. This feedback is really useful for us in the early weeks to ensure your hearing aids are programmed effectively.
  4. Find a safe place to keep your hearing aids at night or when you are not wearing them. Find somewhere out of reach of small children and pets! You will be surprised how many hearing aids have been eaten by the family dog!!
  5. Your hearing aids are working hard all day long to keep you connected to your surroundings. Regular maintenance and careful cleaning will ensure they perform at their best for as long as possible.

We will show you how to clean and maintain your hearing aids during your follow up appointments but the following pages contain useful tips and reminders.

What our clients say

Useful information prior to your first visit

We have put together some commonly asked questions

We always allow an hour and a half for a full hearing assessment. Unlike other bigger organisations, we take the time to do a thorough assessment to ensure you get the very best results and have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need to.

We actively encourage you to bring someone with you to your hearing assessment should you wish to.

This could be a spouse, partner, family member or someone who you feel close to. They can provide invaluable support and often provide us with really useful information during the initial discussions.

Anyone who is fitted with hearing aids needs time to adjust and get used to them. To ensure you get the most from your hearing aids you will need regular follow-up appointments. Unlike some major high street retailers, we provide a comprehensive aftercare service. We do not want your hearing aids to end up discarded in a drawer! As a small, family run business we work closely with you and take the time to ensure your hearing is the best it can be. Alan is in our centre 5 days a week and we are happy to arrange appointments at short notice or outside opening hours if necessary. All aftercare appointments are included in the cost of your hearing aids.

Early indications of hearing loss are;

  • Frequently having to ask people to repeat themselves.
  • Having difficulty hearing in noisy or busy places
  • Misunderstanding conversations
  • Finding that people are mumbling
  • Having to increase the volume on the television
  • Avoiding social situations

If any of the above sound familiar then we recommend that you make an appointment with a qualified audiologist.

No. Like other items such as mobile phones and cameras, technology has moved on and today’s hearing aids are smaller, lighter and very discreet. In some cases they are totally invisible and others won’t know you are wearing them. A hearing aid should never be uncomfortable. At Nantwich Hearing Centre we will ensure yours fit perfectly.

Your hearing assessment will be conducted by Alan Jackson, who is a qualified Audiologist registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). All your fitting and aftercare appointments will also be with Alan. You will get to know him very well!
