More often than not, hearing loss patients reject or return properly prescribed hearing aids. Common reasons include the patients associating hearing aids with age, disability and difficult change. Also, the patient may not have been giving adequate support during the initial fitting of the hearing aid where realistic expectations and constant support have to be given. At hearLIFE, we recognise the common issues among hearing loss patients and we offer a life-long counselling services to patients pre-fitting or post-fitting.
