Hearing aid care

Hearing aids represent a significant investment in our ability to communicate and connect with those around us. Take care of your hearing aids by following these simple tips, and they should provide life-changing benefits for years to come!

Do’s

  1. Do wear your hearing aids every day, for at least 10 to 12 hours a day.
  2. Do open the battery door of hearing aids every night to let the device air out and extend the life of the batteries.
  3. Do clean your hearing aids every morning by wiping off the microphone and receiver (speaker) with a soft cloth.
  4. Do have spare batteries with you at all times.
  5. Do contact your hearing healthcare professional with any questions or concerns. They are there to help.

Don’ts

  1. Don’t wear your hearing aids in the shower or while swimming.
  2. Don’t let others wear your hearing aids.
  3. Don’t apply hair spray, gel or dry shampoo while wearing your hearing aids.
