My Dad is 90 yrs old he lives in assisted living. He is constantly breaking or losing his HA (5 since July, 2 of which were new from VA). The VA ordered him a replacement which I took home, he is only eligible for 1 more for the next 4 yrs. Dad insists on taking HA off when he talks on the phone (had Bluetooth), if he’s reading and there is noise, people talking, music playing, ect. I ordered Ear Gear for glasses, in the hope of finding a way he won’t lose them.
I ordered him cheap hearing aids from E Bay (224 for 2). I pay for all extras over room and board, I can not afford the way he goes thru HA’s, I feel guilty leaving him with none, but need to figure out a way he won’t lose them. I have tried Otto Clips, other Ear Gear and Ear Huggies. Dad does not have dementia, but is physically disabled. One pair he crushed when he stepped on it after running it over with his wheel chair. I have begged him not to take them off, he has told me when I connect them to his glasses, he may lose all 3. Any suggestions you may have will be appreciated.
