Choosing the right hearing aid
When it come to finding the perfect hearing aid, the key is choosing one that can support your level of hearing loss. Some smaller and less powerful types of hearing aids aren’t really suitable for someone with severe or profound hearing loss. A hearing aid dispenser will be able to tell you which types of hearing aid are suitable for your range of hearing loss.
Once you’ve narrowed down the types of hearing aid which cater your level of hearing, you should consider which one will best suit your lifestyle. For example, if you struggle with your fine motor skills (such as: buttoning clothes, turning pages in a book), making adjustments to the settings of a smaller hearing aid might be quite difficult for you.
