Hearing aid aftercare in the community
It takes time to adapt to using hearing aids – getting used to new sounds as well as managing the hearing aids themselves. If you don’t keep your hearing aids maintained, you won’t be able to hear as clearly. Taking care of your hearing aids also means it will last longer and maybe save you unnecessary trips to your audiologist. We understand that basic maintenance tasks can be tricky, but St Mark’s Hearing Champions can help you make the most of your hearing aids.
