Had a fun discussion the other day about cell phone connectivity with a husband and wife. They went on to say, ” that’s another story”. We’re a couple of old people with high-tech things, even getting emails mixed up, we’re grasping just to keep up. LOL!
This is a common occurrence among a generation having grown up without computers. I was in college when computers and Windows came about, so I can understand what they mean. Smartphones are also quite new in that generation. Many in their 70s or older might not have a need or a want to use smartphones. It’s our responsibility to inform, teach, and ensure success is had depending on the cell or computer use. Whether a patient has an iPhone or Android smartphone we will do our best to share how they can stream calls and music, adjust noise or speech on the spot, change programs, etc. How about streaming music, videos, or facetime audio directly to your hearing devices? Yes, it’s pretty easy these days.
It’s rewarding to help and show how new technology, in hearing devices and various other devices, can improve one’s life.
