Should I Have My Hearing Checked?
When should I have my hearing checked?
Just like eyes and teeth, it is recommended that hearing is checked once a year or certainly if someone thinks that their hearing is diminishing. All hearing tests and consultations are free at Keith Donaghy Hearingcare.
How do I detect a change in my hearing?
It is usually difficult because the deterioration is often gradual, so hearing needs to be checked regularly by a professional. Friends and relatives may tell you that you are not hearing properly or you may find that the television etc. needs to be turned up for you to hear it.
When do I need to use a hearing aid?
If you have a significant loss in your hearing then a new digital hearing aid system will bring your hearing back to as near normal as possible. There are many digital systems available on the market and generally speaking the more sophisticated the system the more expensive it is.
How much do hearing aids cost?
When investing in a hearing aid system you are not just purchasing hearing aids but also the after care package so it is important to consider what the standard of help and advice is available when you start wearing your new hearing aids. At Keith Donaghy Hearingcare prices start from £960.00 for a pair of the latest digital technology hearing aids which includes the initial hearing test, fitting and complete aftercare package. Because Keith Donaghy is local patients rarely wait more than a few days before they can see him.
How long do hearing aids last?
All hearing aids come with a 2 year manufacturers guarantee. Providing that the hearing aids system is cleaned and serviced regularly it will last for 6 to 8 years. However many people change their system after 3 to 4 years usually because they want to use the latest technology available.
