Port Alberni Hearing Aids, Hearing Tests & More

Full or partial hearing loss presents a tremendous challenge for millions of Canadians each year. While some signs might be hard to notice, such as slight ringing in the background, difficulty hearing in crowded environments or even challenges hearing certain pitches, other symptoms are more severe and can make daily life more difficult. While the symptoms are often different, they all present very real difficulties at work, at home, and among friends.

No matter your individual circumstances, the knowledge of a qualified RHIP is important to provide an accurate hearing test so they can find the best hearing aid to suit your hearing problems. Our team at the Port Alberni NexGen Hearing clinic located on Pemberton Road is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients.

J Waldron

Really attentive and involved staff.. super caring and accommodating, which makes all the difference in the world.. dealing with something like progressive hearing loss..especially as a working musician, is hard enough.. and so dealing with such a caring place and it's staff can make the biggest difference in your safe t y and confidence.. I know this from having the unfortunate experience of dealing with other places where the people were pretty indifferent. And I felt like a number. It was horrible. You WILL be treated with respect and dignity here..and they will take care of you!

Bill C

My dad got his hearing aids here. When I had to deal with them on his behalf, found them incredibly helpful. And I know that when he switched to nexgen our conversations were a lot easier, so the product seems good!

Pat B

Have always been pleased with the service and love the friendly atmosphere.

Frequently Asked Questions

We do perform tinnitus assessments at some of our NexGen Hearing clinics. To find out which clinic you can book a tinnitus assessment appointment please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.

The act of not wearing a hearing aid in itself will not make your hearing get worse. What can make your hearing get worse is not wearing a hearing aid and needing to increase the volume on things like televisions, radios, and headphones, or needing people you are talking with to talk louder. We recommend you wear your hearing aid as directed by your doctor and audiologist. However, if you are not wearing your hearing device, be sure not to overdo it with turning up the volume.

The adjustment period for a new hearing aid can vary from person to person. Most people become fully adjusted to their hearing aid within two to three weeks, but some people can take up to four months to become completely comfortable with their hearing aid.

 

It’s important to remain patient while you get used to your hearing aid, but if you suspect that your hearing aid is not calibrated properly or it isn’t working for you, come back to see us and we’ll help you adjust your hearing aid or set you up with one that will work better for your needs.

An analog hearing aid is an older type of hearing aid that makes continuous sound waves louder. Speech and noise are amplified in the same way, so an analog hearing aid can be thought of as a device that turns the volume up on everything around you. They can be programmed for different listening environments that can be switched at the push of a button on the hearing aid.

 

More commonly found these days, a digital hearing aid will have all of the features that come in an analog device. Instead of amplifying all sound waves, a digital hearing aid will convert sound waves into digital signals, and then produce an exact duplication of the sound. The technology used in a digital hearing aid is more sophisticated and allows for more complex processing of sound. This gives them greater flexibility in programming to allow the sound they transmit to be matched to the specific type of hearing loss a patient is experiencing.

 

If you are unsure which type is right for you, contact our clinic and come see us to discuss your needs and options!

The life of a hearing aid’s battery is impacted by many factors such as the hearing aid model, battery brand, battery technology, and how the device is used. The model of the hearing aid is integral in determining the life of the battery. Some hearing aids are better than others in terms of battery consumption while others offer features that will more quickly drain a battery. Batteries come in four common sizes (10, 312, 13, 675). Based on a 16 hour day of wear, the average lifespan for a standard battery is listed below:

Size 10: 3 – 7 days
Size 312: 3 – 10 days
Size 13: 6 – 14 days
Size 675: 9 – 20 days

If you prefer, rechargeable hearing aid batteries are also available for certain models of hearing aids that greatly improve the ease of replacing your batteries. Consult with your local NexGen Hearing aid practitioner for additional details.
