Hearing Solutions vs. Big Box Hearing Aids

Posted by Heaing Solutions on Mar 16, 2017 9:29:39 AM

With pending changes to medical device classification like hearing aids, consumers are faced with more and more options on how to deal with hearing loss. As more options become available there are things you need to consider with where and how you are buying your hearing aids. Can you buy hearing aids at your local Big Box store? Yes. Are the hearing aids you get from the Big Box store as good as getting them from a licensed hearing aid dispenser? Sometimes. Will the the Big Box store provide you with the type of service and care needed to keep your hearing aids working towards the optimal outcome? Absolutely not. 

When thinking about where to buy a hearing aid, there is a quick question you should ask yourself, "Do I want to buy a medical device to help me hear better at the same place I buy my toilet paper in bulk?" The answer to that question is probably, or at the very least should be, a resounding no. When buying a medical device like a hearing aid, you need to go through an Audiologist or Hearing Instrument Specialist, both of which we have on staff at Hearing Solutions.

Hearing Loss and Personality Changes | Hearing Solutions

Posted by Heaing Solutions on Feb 13, 2017 4:29:41 PM

As people approach old age, they generally become less outgoing. New research shows that this change in personality is amplified among people with impaired hearing. The findings emphasize the importance of acknowledging and treating hearing loss in the elderly population.

The researchers studied 400 individuals 80-98 years old over a six-year period. Every two years, the subjects were assessed in terms of physical and mental measures as well as personality aspects such as extraversion, which reflects the inclination to be outgoing, and emotional stability. The results show that even if the emotional stability remained constant over the period, the participants became less outgoing.
