What are hearing aids?
A hearing aid is a small electronic device that increases the loudness of sound to help people hear. It has a microphone, an amplifier, a speaker and a battery. The microphone receives sound waves and turns them into electrical signals.
The amplifier receives these electrical signals and increases their power before sending them to your ear through a speaker.
How can I get hearing aids?
If you think you have hearing loss, you should have a FREE hearing test at one of our locations.
After the test, you will be advised whether or not a hearing aid might suit you. We understand not everyone with a hearing loss will need or want to use a hearing aid.
If you are not eligible for the government program, you may be able to get a hearing aid from a hearing aid bank, which reconditions donated hearing aids. If you have private insurance, check if you are covered for hearing aids.
Types of hearing aids
There are several types of hearing aids. Hearing aids can vary in size, special features, price and the way they are placed in your ear. Hearing aids are worn in or behind the ear.
Behind-the-ear hearing aids are relatively easy to clean and maintain. Hearing aids that are placed in the ear are smaller and harder to clean. Speak to your doctor or audiologist about finding the right types of hearing aids for you.
Tips for using hearing aids
- Wear the hearing aid for short periods and in quiet places to start with.
- Ask your hearing practitioner how to wear, adjust and clean your hearing aid.
- Keep batteries away from children and pets as they are dangerous if swallowed.
