SALT SPRING NEXGEN HEARING
Meet Your Local Hearing Professional
Selene grew up around the hearing industry working in a family business of hearing clinics for 40 years. This inspired her decision to become a Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner. She has had a successful career for over 20 years and is the proud owner of the first NexGen Hearing clinic in BC. Her passion is reflected in the continued work to improve the quality of life of her clients through better hearing.
Terena’s interest in hearing loss started when she was about 15 and noticed the struggles her grandfather had with and without hearing aids. His hearing aids obviously helped him, but they were often whistling, and he kept fiddling with the volume controls. Fortunately, hearing aid technology has come a long way since then.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are many factors that determine the style of hearing aid that’s right for you, including but not limited to factors such as your degree of hearing loss, size and shape of your ear and ear canal, and any special features that are required.
Your NexGen Hearing registered hearing care professional can recommend an appropriate style of hearing aid for you – get in touch today!
If your hearing aid is making a whistling noise, then you are hearing feedback in your device. Sound that was supposed to go into your ear canal has escaped the ear instead and been picked up by the hearing instrument’s microphone. The sound then becomes reamplified and put out of the speaker.
This can happen when the hearing aid does not fit properly. If you are experiencing a whistling noise in your hearing device, come see us at our clinic so we can have your hearing aid refitted.
Hearing aid prices vary from several hundred dollars up to a few thousand, and it all depends on the technology level in each device. Affordable hearing aids and the more expensive options come with different features and capabilities.
You can think of hearing aids as coming in levels of gold, silver, or bronze. If your listening needs are simple, it just might be that even the most basic hearing aid is enough for you. If your life is more active and you find yourself wanting to hear better in more active and noisy listening environments, then a more sophisticated level of hearing aid features will give you more benefit.
NexGen Hearing also offers financing options to help you with an affordable option to improve your hearing. Learn more about our lease to hear financing and other hearing aid financing options.
At our clinic, we use the pure-tone audiometry test which involves you sitting in a soundproof room while wearing headphones and pressing a button every time you hear a sound. This is a short and painless test that usually lasts about 15 minutes.
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.
