My mom was fitted with a hearing aid 2 years ago, tried it for about a year and stopped using it because she and my dad noticed no difference at all with or without.
My mom does not hear anyone, unless we are facing her directly. Even if I am a few feet away, if her back is to me she hears nothing. I broached the subject of re-exploring hearing aids and she is very open.
So my question is, how do I help her? I guess the first thing is to have another hearing test.
Question: Does it matter where she is tested? I saw on this site that someone did it at Costco. Is this as good an option as any audiologist?
I just don’t understand how the person she worked with just gave up. I would like someone to work with her who will not stop until a solution is reached. Is that a reasonable expectation?
Also, does anyone have any input on hearingplanet.com? I am just trying to figure out next steps and their website and info. seemed helpful.
Thank you to anyone who can answer my questions and point me in the right direction!
