Tips for new hearing aid wearers
- Read aloud to yourself to get used to the volume of your own voice to determine the correct volume.
- Use your hearing aid as long as you can, and increase your wearing time a little each day while you are first getting used to your new device.
- Ask your friends and family with help determining comfortable volume settings for devices such as the radio or television.
- Expect your everyday surroundings to seem loud at first. You will be hearing noises that you were unable to hear before. With time, you will soon find that you will acclimate to your new hearing and sound levels will become normal.
