The gift of hearing can transform your life and now that it has been made affordable, nobody should have to struggle with hearing loss, especially when there are so many options available to solve this problem.
The main concern people have with hearing aids is that they are bulky, unsightly and costly. This is no longer the case. The hearing aid industry has been revolutionized of late, with several new hearing aids on the market that are streamlined, discreet and practically invisible.
Who is affected by hearing loss?
In Canada, one in six people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and the numbers are rising daily. Contrary to popular belief this is not something that just affects us in old age. There are more than 45,000 deaf children in Canada, with thousands of other children that suffer from temporary hearing loss. Over 357,000 people in Canada are severely or profoundly deaf. Around 3.2 million people* could benefit from hearing aids.
Hearing loss is a serious condition that can be addressed with a very simple solution, which in turn will enhance the quality of your life. Using a hearing aid will simply amplify sound. The aids are available in both analog and digital and come in a variety of types, shapes, and sizes.
What types of devices are available?
The main types of devices on the market are all battery operated and fall into four categories, Behind-the-ear (BTE), In-the-ear (ITE), In-the-canal (ITC) and Completely-in-the-canal (CIC). You can book a free consultation and purchase discrete types of hearing aids privately.
What are the costs?
Hearing aid prices vary depending on your specific hearing loss and the features you need. Some clinics may peak your interest because they advertise low prices, but may not offer the qualified Hearing Experts and critical after-purchase service care you need for the long term. Find a provider who’s price includes everything you need.
