You’re In Good Hands
For those who are concerned, skeptical or have heard conflicting reports about the effectiveness of hearing aids, we can provide a customized demonstration of the hearing aid abilities. This is why we ask you to bring a spouse or adult family member with you to participate in the demonstration of hearing aid technology.
It’s important to use a voice the patient is familiar with to set reasonable expectations as well as generate optimism and excitement. Without their hearing aids, most of our patients truly SUFFER from hearing loss and the unaffected generally don’t understand the amount of effort involved for the hearing impaired to keep up with a conversation. Instead of immediate understanding of what is being said, additional steps are being added to the understanding equation such as: hearing, interpreting, guessing and eventually processing what they thought they heard. In most cases, this can involve substantial effort on the part of the hearing-impaired leading to depression, social withdrawal and despair.
Family Hearing Services’ goal is to help make hearing and understanding easier and more effortless to keep you or your loved ones socially involved as long as they can!
