A real difference—makerHearing aids help woman stay involved
She was fitted for her first hearing aid at Sanford Hearing Centers and has been a patient there ever since.
“It sounded as if I was under water, and I was missing so much of what was being said,” she said. “I’ve been very socially active since I retired and worried I would have to quit taking classes and participating in community activities.”
Her new hearing aids put an end to those fears.
“My audiologist, Arneson-Thilmony, recommended the best technology available for me,”Wright said. “I replaced both devices, and my hearing is nearly 100 percent now.”
These are not the hearing aids of days gone by, often relegated to dresser drawers.
“We made a significant improvement by upgrading Barbara to the latest digital technology,” Arneson-Thilmony said. “These hearing aids have excellent sound processing and multiple microphones to address background noise.”
Arneson-Thilmony encourages anyone struggling with hearing to see an audiologist for evaluation.
“Have your hearing aids investigated to see how the latest technology can improve the quality of your life,” she said. “An audiologist can also try to improve your current hearing aids by properly adjusting them.”
Wright’s advice to others is clear.
“If you have any hearing problems, get screened and get whatever help you need,” she said. “Even with a slight hearing loss, hearing aids will make a real difference in your life, and you’ll wonder why you waited. Your family will also thank you.”
