When Should I Update My Hearing Aids?

Have you been wondering, “when is it time to get new hearing aids?”

While it’s a common question, there are many factors to consider when upgrading to new hearing devices. That’s why we’ve put together this list of factors to help you decide if you should update your current hearing aids.

Do your hearing aids still work?

While wearing your hearing aids, you shouldn’t have to ask others to repeat themselves or constantly turn the television volume up. Try to notice if you’re struggling to hear noises around you. If so, your hearing aids may not be working properly.

Has your hearing health changed?

Your hearing quality changes as you age. These changes can happen quickly or slowly and affect which type and style of hearing aids will help you hear best.

That’s why it’s important to have your hearing checked regularly at Creekside.

Have you made a major lifestyle change?

Events such as retiring, moving and picking up a new hobby can affect which style of hearing aids are right for you. For example, if you used to spend most of your time indoors, but now find yourself outside regularly, you may need a new style of hearing aid to meet your new hearing needs.

New technology

Technological advancements are made each day, especially in the world of hearing devices. You may have bought the best hearing aids available last year, but recent technology may be more beneficial for you now. Ask your audiologists if there’s new technology to help you hear better.
