Feeling frustrated from trying to hear what others around you are saying? Whether it happens suddenly or gradually over time, hearing loss can affect you both physically and emotionally. Not being able to hear impacts your ability to communicate with your loved ones, talk on the phone, and may force you to become more reliant on your family members. Hearing aids are designed to help you hear better and understand speech in all types of situations, including noisy environments. In our office, we have witnessed patients making remarkable improvements by simply dedicating themselves to getting the most out of wearing a hearing aid. Read below for 3 steps to better hearing:
- Admit that your hearing is not what it used to be. Understanding that your hearing has changed may be difficult at first; however, the sooner you begin to seek a solution, the more likely you will be to maintain the ability to comprehend speech and avoid unnecessary struggles.
- Keep an open mind and a positive attitude while seeking help. Like we have all been told from a young age, attitude is everything. The same applies to having success in treating your hearing loss. Since everyone’s hearing loss is unique, there are a variety of options to consider. We strive to present the solutions that are best for your hearing needs as well as your budget.
- Learn about your hearing problem. Get educated on what may have caused your hearing loss and what the best solutions are for treatment and extended care. At Wiesman Nasal & Sinus, we make sure that every patient is provided with the resources that they need to ensure a successful outcome.
Many people with hearing loss go without a solution because they can’t afford the price of hearing aids. To help you with the purchase of a hearing aid, we proudly accept the CareCredit credit card. Think of CareCredit as your own health and wellness credit card. You can use the card for a new hearing device or an upgrade. You shouldn’t have to worry about how to get the optimal device that will be the solution for your hearing needs.
