As your local hearing care specialists, we’ve always emphasized the importance of taking care of your physical and mental well being. They’re essential parts of your better hearing program. Healthy diet and exercise and regular social activities with loved ones are vital to achieving the listening lifestyle you desire.
These factors, combined with regular hearing evaluations, can help you reach your better hearing goals. But in order to maintain your ability to hear well in the situations where you need it most—like while watching television, talking to your children and grandchildren on the telephone, or conversing in a noisy environment like a car or crowded restaurant — you need to be certain your devices are always performing at their best. Through proper care, you can extend the life of your investment in better hearing. But don’t forget that your hearing wellness is a team effort.
A professionally-conducted Clean & Check of your devices (recommended about twice annually) can help us remove much of the dirt and oil that builds up on devices though daily wear and tear. A Clean & Check also indicates the need of firmware updates, or whether it’s time to consider a technology upgrade.
Because keeping your devices clean is such an important part of your hearing wellness plan, Hawkins Hearing Center invites you to our practice for a FREE Clean & Check: Just make an appointment and we’ll do the rest. We’ll even have refreshments available and throw in a FREE pack of batteries as a thank you for your continued support of our services.
And if you know of anyone who got their devices from a different clinic who feels unsatisfied with their performance, tell them to come along with you—we’ll look at their devices, too! Much like the rest of your hearing wellness plan, taking care of your devices is a team effort.
Here are a few tips you can use to keep your devices working properly between check ups:
