ENT & Allergy of Delaware proudly offers an educational program specifically designed for people who wear hearing aids, who are considering getting hearing aids, new hearing aid users, and for the families/friends of those who wear hearing aids. We understand the complexities of hearing loss and how it can have a huge impact on quality of life.
That’s why we designed our program to teach people about hearing, hearing loss and hearing aids. The class provides attendees with the tools they need to get help for their hearing and communication difficulties, as well as to encourage realistic expectations. Listening strategies are discussed, as well as the role of hearing aids in everyday communication events.
Those who attend the class leave with a much better understanding of what hearing aids can and cannot do, as well as the knowledge they need to make the most of every listening experience. Each attendee who wears hearing aids will receive a free gift – a cleaning kit for their hearing aids. This class is free to attend, but registration is required. It is also helpful to have a hearing test prior to coming to the class because the handouts include personalized results for the patients. This allows the patient and their loved ones to gain a better understanding of the specific individual needs of each person.
