by Jeff Reynolds

If you've recently been diagnosed with hearing loss and have started using hearing aids, you may be looking for advice. This article explains what you should do to make sure you get the most you can from your new hearing aid. Read on to find out.

1. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines 

When you first get your hearing aid, it's important to take the time to read the manual and follow the manufacturer's guidelines. This will ensure that you understand how to properly care for and use your hearing aid. While it may seem like common sense, there are certain things that you should do (and avoid) in order to prolong the life of your hearing aid and keep it working properly. For example, you should always store your hearing aid in a dry, clean place when you're not using it. You should also avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight. In addition, be sure to handle your hearing aid with care — dropping it could damage the internal components. By following these tips, you can help ensure that your hearing aid will provide you with years of reliable service.

2. Be patient 

Adjusting to wearing hearing aids can take some time. It may feel strange at first, and you may find yourself feeling a little self-conscious. But give yourself some time to get used to it. In no time, it will start to feel like second nature. The main thing is to be patient and give yourself time to adjust. Remember, you are not alone in this process; help is always available if you need it. With patience, you can enjoy the benefits of your hearing aid fully.

3. Wear them as much as possible

In order for your brain to get used to processing sound again, you must wear your hearing aids as much as possible, even if that means wearing them around the house at first when there aren't a lot of people around or when you don't have anything else going on. The more you wear them, the easier your brain will find it to adjust, and before you know it, wearing them all day long won't be a problem at all.


By following the tips above, you can rest assured knowing that you're well on your way to enjoying all the benefits of improved hearing. Have any other questions? Feel free to reach out to an audiologist for more guidance!
