Hearing Aids in Niles, IL
At Hearing Professionals of Illinois, we understand that the prospect of having hearing loss and getting hearing aids can be overwhelming. Please remember that the decision to pursue hearing instruments is completely elective. It is a decision that should be made, based in large part, on how you are functioning and not solely on test results. In order to be a good candidate for hearing aids, you have to recognize that you are having a communication problem and want help. A person who is not motivated, or who is being pressured into this decision against their will, has little chance of being a successful hearing aid user.
In addition to motivation, there are many factors that help make a patient a successful hearing aid user. First, the patient should be thoroughly educated about hearing instrument technology and what features are the most appropriate for their hearing loss, listening environments and budget. Next, the patient needs to have realistic expectations as to what type of benefit they can expect from their hearing aids. Finally, the patient needs to understand that the process of adapting to hearing instruments can take a few weeks and generally requires several follow-up appointments. A successful hearing aid fitting is more likely when the patient has a good relationship with their audiologist, follows the audiologist’s instructions, and keeps the audiologist informed when any changes occur.
