In April 2016, the Mainland Hearing brand was amalgamated with it’s sister company NexGen Hearing, which has several locations on Vancouver Island and the Interior of BC.

ANSWERS ABOUT HEARING AIDS AND MORE

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Most people will naturally start to lose their hearing around the age of 65. Certain factors can cause people to being to lose their hearing sooner or later in life, such as:
  • Smoking (studies show that smokers experience more hearing loss than non-smokers)
  • Genetics
  • Medical Conditions
  • Medications
  • Sickness
  • Repeated Exposure to Loud Noises
It is always a good idea to get your hearing tested regularly to make sure your hearing health is in good order, and this is especially the case as you get older and closer to 65 years of age. Contact us today to schedule a free hearing test at our clinic!

If your hearing aid is making a beeping noise, it means that your battery is low and needs to be replaced. Simply change the battery in your device and the beeping noise will stop.

 

If you have run out of hearing aid batteries, come see us at our clinic and we will be happy to get you set up with some new ones.

You do not need a referral from your family doctor to see an audiologist. If you suspect you are experiencing symptoms of hearing loss, it certainly is a good idea to discuss this with your doctor. However, you don’t need them to refer you to us in order to have your hearing tested.

 

If you believe your are experiencing hearing loss, don’t wait to see your doctor. Get in touch with us today for a free hearing test.

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.
