Congratulations on your new hearing aids! Now that you have hearing aids you will be able to hear sounds you haven’t heard in a while, such as the hum of the refrigerator or the birds chirping outside. The goal of hearing aid amplification is to improve your access to sound. Hearing aids will not only help you hear better, but they will also help you reconnect with your loved ones. Now that you have hearing aids, discover some goals you should try! Hearing goals are a great way to readjust to hearing sounds again.
Here are a few hearing goals you should test out!
- Have a one-on-one conversation with a friend
- Talk on the phone with children/grandchildren
- Join a group meeting
- Visit a busy restaurant
- Listen to live music
- Listen to music at home
- Go to the movies
These hearing goals will help you measure how your hearing has improved since receiving your hearing aids and will keep you motivated to keep wearing your devices.
Why Should You Try These Goals?
Listening goals are a great way to measure your current hearing ability and to keep track of the different types of environments you have been in. Whether you just received your first pair of hearing aids or you are adjusting to new technology, setting attainable hearing goals will help you keep track of your progress and encourage you to keep wearing your devices.
These goals are just a few examples to help you get started. You can create your own personal hearing goals that fit your unique lifestyle. Depending on the brand of hearing aids you have, you may be able to track your hearing goals on an app on your smartphone. If you are unsure if your hearing aids can be connected to an app, please contact us. We would be happy to help you get connected.
