The impact of hearing loss on a person's quality of life, and the quality of life of their loved ones, may be substantial. The Aural Rehabilitation process takes into account a person's interpersonal, psychosocial, daily functioning, and personal goals.
Your hearing device alone can lead to improved quality of life. But to gain optimal results, you may need Aural Rehabilitation.
Who benefits from Aural Rehabilitation ?
- if you have lost hearing over years or suddenly
- if you are trying a new hearing device
- if you are experiencing issues in the workplace or school or family life that are related to a hearing loss
What is Aural Rehabilitation like?
- You will learn about your specific type of hearing loss and what your hearing aids or cochlear implants can do to help.
- You will retrain your brain to hear sounds you may not have heard before or in a very long time. This is often referred to as Auditory Training.
- Troubleshoot and adjust your environment to work for you. Acoustics in your home and workplace will directly impact your ability to hear and attend to what others are saying to you.
