Check your blood sugar; check your blood pressure; check your hearing. That’s good advice, because research proves that individuals with diabetes, dementia or cardiovascular disease also may be at an increased risk for hearing loss. And age does not need to be a defining factor. While it certainly contributes to hearing loss, people of all ages should be hearing-aware. A good place to start is a professional hearing evaluation with the audiologists at Associated Hearing Professionals.
If assistance is needed, the team at Associated Hearing Professionals can help guide patients to the newest and best in cutting-edge hearing technology, such as invisible hearing aids, aids that use rechargeable batteries and aids that pair directly with Bluetooth devices to stream phone calls, music and even television.
“We spend a lot of time with patients to find out precisely what their needs are before tailoring recommendations for them,” explained audiologist Tina McWhorter.
Different types of sound environments require different technology features. Associated Hearing Professionals adjusts their recommendations depending on patients’ experiences with outdoors, indoors, traveling, noisy versus quiet venues, big versus small rooms, etc.
Training and continuing education ensures that the staff and the technology they use are innovative and state-of-the-art. Devices are re-programmed and assistive technology is offered when indicated so that patients’ needs continue to be met.
“We treat the whole person by treating their hearing,” Tina said.
Together, the team at Associated Hearing Professionals have decades of experience, which benefits patients of all ages.
Jack, a Chesterfield resident, said his experience with Associated Hearing Professionals “exceeded my high expectations. … They treated my hearing problems with real concern for my health.”
