Sometimes only the best will do – it’s a phrase often said about the luxuries in life, indulgences that you don’t necessarily need. But when it comes to your hearing health, it really is essential to get the very best care. That’s because your hearing is central to your enjoyment of the world around you. Getting effective treatment for your hearing loss is the difference between living life to the full, or facing increasing isolation and disconnection from the world around you. So what is ‘the best’ when it comes to looking after your hearing health? Who should you turn to?
An Audiologist takes a holistic approach to your hearing health
If you’re experiencing hearing loss, you may think that all you need to do is visit your local Hearing Aid Dispenser and get fitted with hearing aids. It is true that hearing aids can treat certain types of hearing loss, but not all kinds. Sometimes you might need hearing aids, as well as surgical or medical interventions and in certain cases hearing aids may not be needed or beneficial. An Audiologist will look at every aspect of your hearing health to get to the bottom of what is causing your hearing issues. This holistic approach ensures we don’t miss a thing when it comes to your hearing health and that you get exactly the right kind of treatment.
An Audiologist has years of training at your disposal
When it comes to your health, it can be hard to put your trust in a stranger, so it might help to know the skills they have gained to be able to care for you properly. An Audiologist has invested 4 years in a medical degree, at least 350 hours in patient care and 12 months of supervised on-the-job training. All of that theoretical knowledge and practical experience is put to use so that you get the best possible hearing care.
An Audiologist can help you select the right kind of hearing aids
An Audiologist is focused on making sure you have the perfect hearing aid for your individual needs and lifestyle. Driven by a passion for hearing care and not the bottom line, an Audiologist can provide you with a fair assessment of the different kinds and brands of hearing aids out there, so you can find the right match for your life.
An Audiologist can help you take better care of your hearing
An Audiologist doesn’t just provide effective hearing care and treatment; they can also give you advice on how to look after your hearing after you leave their clinic. The day-to-day responsibility lies with you, but an Audiologist is here to help you make the right choices for your hearing health.
