I’m 44 years old and have been wearing hearing aids since I was 30. I’m on my second set now and they are 7 years old. The right one broke last week (telephone switch) and my audiologist advised me not to spend $250 to repair it because I need to buy new hearing aids. But since I have one child in college and one in braces…money is not available.
I think that when my medical spending kicks in in January, I can at least buy a left hearing aid but how can I get through until then? Has anyone used the hearing amplifiers? I thought I might could get one of those for $30-50 and make it for a couple of months.
Any thoughts or advice?
