Wondering if your hearing is the best it can be? At Amanda’s Family Hearing, we offer comprehensive hearing testing as well as personalized consultations to help you meet your hearing goals.

Just coming off the holidays, sitting around the table with family and friends, did you notice any of them being particularly quiet or even avoiding conversations? Perhaps they needed things repeated or rephrased?

This is common among individuals with hearing loss. Even mild hearing loss can make communicating difficult, especially in the presence of background noise, such as at family gatherings.

Fortunately, we live in an age of digital technology that is constantly improving. The first digital hearing aids came out more than 25 years ago. Today, they are highly sophisticated little computers. Don’t be fooled by a hearing aid’s tiny size, as they are jam-packed with high-end digital technology to give you the best hearing possible.

Hearing loss can occur at any age. The earlier loss is treated, the higher the probability that hearing aids will be helpful. Without proper stimulation, the brain can lose its ability to recognize sounds, making understanding speech significantly more difficult. MRI studies of the brain have shown that auditory deprivation in as little as three weeks can have neural consequences.

If we perform a comprehensive hearing test and determine hearing aids are the best route, we will discuss with each patient what technology best suits their needs. Our hearing aids can satisfy close to everyone’s needs and budgets. Don’t wait any longer to come hear with us.
