Can elderly use custom made hearing aid too?
One common misconception is that elderly users cannot use custom-made hearing aid. From our extensive clinical experience, we are happy to share that many of our senior users actually finds it more comfortable and easy to use custom-made hearing aid models over behind-the-ear model. When a user finds an hearing aid comfortable and easy to use, they build confidence and are motivated to wear it more. When they wear it often, it helps them to relearn sounds, train the brain’s cognitive processing ability and hears better, leading to the desired successful hearing outcome.
