Hmmmm, which puppy to choose??
Decisions, decisions, decisions are necessary when something important is pondered.
Is this, or better yet, should this be the case with hearing loss and choosing the right hearing device for your hearing and communication needs? Decisions, confusion, and a great deal of unknown is present. Evaluating hearing loss can be a rather detailed and complicated process, and one in which is very important. For the audiologist, it is our duty to provide clear answers to questions. It’s essential to provide a rational meaning and explanation to a hearing loss, and what this means to a person and their quality of hearing. It’s our duty to reduce confusion and instead, offer clarity and understanding. For in the world of hearing labs, there are so many hearing devices that may be helpful, but in most cases, there are one or two that remain optimum.
Our staff takes great pleasure in getting to know each and every person who comes to our office. We place sincere attention in helping people to understand what they are experiencing whether this involves hearing loss, balance or dizziness, or tinnitus/ringing in the ears. When understanding, making sense, and a person’s needs are emphasized, the decision can ultimately be rather easy.
Choosing the solution for hearing loss, balance concerns, and tinnitus can be easier than finding the right puppy…..that is, when they are all so cute!
When you have to make a difficult decision to help solve a problem or help with an issue, good information and clear understanding make decisions much easier. Except with the puppies…. I want them all!!!
True, all the information is so helpful.
Right on with the puppies….:)
Making the decision on improving hearing should not be a hard choice when hearing problems interfere with a person’s ability to communicate. Improving a person’s ability to communicate improves their quality of life! Although I suppose getting a puppy can improve quality of life too!
Yes, true. It shouldn’t be difficult… but it can be if people don’t understand. We do our best to help people understand….:)
Puppies do help!
Do you suppose it would be an easier decision and more exciting if you got the puppy with the hearing devices!? 😉
All joking aside, I think we as people spend to much time having a fear of the unknown. Myself included! Better understanding and talking with our offices to pin point the “whys” and solutions can be such a relief.
Hmmmmmm, Good point. New beginnings and fun time hearing and being with a puppy!
Yes, the unknown can be scary and only causes confusion and fear. Good point Jen!
very nice. 🙂
Thank you Mary!
With all the different choices of hearing aids it’s amazing that our audiologists fit our patients with the right aids! It is like picking out a puppy and in the end it’s always the right one too.
I agree. There are many choices to consider and we do our best to find the “right” choice for hearing devices.
Love the analogy!! Jen, they do make hearing aids for dogs believe it or not!! I think it would be a little bit easier to find the right device for my patients then trying to guess which one Rover would like! Too fun!
Thanks for commenting Kristie! Yes, people tend to be easier than pups!
