A LAST WORD :

It takes 3-9 months to adapt to hearing aids :

Many new hearing aid wearers will not appreciate this and will quickly become detached from their hearing aids , choosing to wear them less frequently or not at all . Hearing aids are far more challenging to get used to than contact lenses . A good provider will have anticipated this mid-term problem .
Long term wearers will often adopt negative views about their hearing aids . A good provider will be at hand to counter these thoughts !
Quite unlike any other item you will ever purchase , the switched-on consumer will buy a long-term service contract within the price of the hearing aids .
A good provider will be of sound enough character and / or sufficiently well-managed to see the business advantages of keeping in touch with you in the long term . You need to assess your chosen provider and trust him / her to look after you for years to come .
