USING AND MAINTAINING YOUR HEARING INSTRUMENTS
Now that you have hearing instruments, you may notice sounds you haven't heard in a long time. Background street noises, a chirping bird, children playing... these are all sounds that gradually faded out of your life as your hearing diminished. Your decision to explore this new world of sound will enhance your quality of life. The key is to remain optimistic during the aclimatisation period. You must give yourself time to adapt to better hearing. Daily use of your hearing instruments will be essential to that process.

- Show you basic care and maintenance of your instruments.
