Conversations over the phone are often difficult for people who have hearing loss.
There are several different captioned phone options for people who find themselves in this situation. A captioned telephone has a large screen to display what the person on the phone is saying in text.
What’s even better? Most caption phone services and products are available FREE with the approval and signature from an Audiologist!
By far, the most effective solution to hearing loss is hearing aids.
Hearing aids can be programmed to your specific hearing loss and use an algorithm to amplify important noise (i.e. conversation).
Hearing aids come in all shapes and sizes and are very discrete.
Please see our Hearing Aids FAQ page for more information.
Assisted Listening Devices
Assisted listening devices are beneficial for people who are not ready to invest in traditional hearing aids.
They are simple noise amplifiers and are helpful when watching TV and having one-on-one conversations in quiet. Unlike traditional hearing aids, they amplify everything equally so they are not a good option for people who have an active lifestyle.
