Hearing Aids

Choosing the right professional is the most important decision you will make when you’re ready to do something about your hearing loss.

Hearing Tests

The first step in any evaluation is to assess your current health and your health history with an audiologist.

Elite Hearing always starts every tinnitus management program by helping patients understand what is known about tinnitus

Other Hearing Services

clEAR Auditory Training

The clEAR program is centered on a series of computerized brain training games, with personalized lesson plans to guide you that are fun to play! Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis showed that clEAR improves speech discrimination, which is your ability to recognize words accurately. clEAR also reduces mental effort so that listening becomes less exhausting.

Hearing Conservation

Noise, or unwanted sound, is a pervasive occupational health problem. Exposure to high levels of noise can cause hearing loss. The extent of damage depends primarily on the intensity of the noise and the duration of the exposure. Noise-induced hearing loss can be temporary or permanent.

Temporary hearing loss results from short-term exposure to noise, with normal hearing returning after a period of rest. Generally, prolonged exposure to high noise levels over a period of time can gradually cause permanent damage. But even one time exposures to very loud sounds can cause permanent damage.

Custom Earmolds

The shape of your outer ear and ear canal are unique to you. Custom hearing protection and custom earmolds will make sure you get the maximum benefit from hearing protection. Whether you work in a noisy environment, enjoy listening to live music, are a professional musician or an avid swimmer, a custom earmold that offers you a custom level of protection will allow you to carry on your day safely, greatly reducing your chance of experiencing hearing loss.

Whether you work in a noisy environment, enjoy listening to live music, are a professional musician or an avid swimmer, a custom earmold that offers you a custom level of protection will allow you to carry on your day safely, greatly reducing your chance of experiencing hearing loss.

Earmolds are typically used for one of two reasons:

  • To keep things out (noise and water are the two big issues).
  • To keep things in (amplified sound from a hearing aid).

To obtain the maximum benefit from an earmold you need the best fit possible and that is exactly why we offer custom made earmolds.

  • Musician’s earplugs
  • Swim Molds (for swimming or showering)

Join the Battery Club

Today’s Digital hearing aids consume a lot of energy. A hearing aid battery’s life is dependent on several factors: size, length of shelf time, brand, and humidity. In addition the user’s hearing aid style and brand, type of hearing loss, individual listening environments, and hours of use will have an impact on hearing aid batteries. With so many brands, how do you know if you’re getting your money’s worth?

T-Coil

A telecoil, also called a t-coil, is a coil of wire that is installed inside many hearing aids and cochlear implants to act as a miniature wireless receiver. It was originally designed to make sounds clearer to a listener over the telephone. It also is used with a variety of other assistive listening devices, such as hearing loop (or induction loop) systems, FM systems, infrared systems, and personal amplifiers.  Now it can also be used in “looped” facilities, with some cell phones, or in addition to FM systems and personal amplifiers. A simple switch or programming maneuver performed by the user activates this function. Ask us if you want to see if a telecoil program can be activated in your hearing hearing aid.

More About T-Coils

Many cochlear implants have a telecoil built into the sound processor or  T-coils in hearing aids or cochlear implants can use an external telecoil accessory with both hearing aid compatible telephones and public loop systems. A simple switch or programming maneuver performed by the user activates this function.

 

Aural Rehabilitation

Aural rehabilitation or “aural rehab” is the process of identifying and diagnosing a hearing loss and then providing different types of therapies to patients who are hearing impaired. We use aural rehab in our practice as an important component in the overall care of our patients. We don’t just see our patients as a set of ears disconnected from the overall person. We know that there is much more to you than your hearing loss. The goal of all aural rehab therapies is to assist anyone with a hearing loss to overcome or learn to compensate for any problems caused by a hearing loss. Trust your hearing care to a practice that views you as an individual who happens to be hearing impaired and not just a set of ears.

More About Aural Rehabilitation

The many different types of aural rehabilitation therapies:

  • Hearing aid orientation: The process of providing education and therapies to persons (individual or group) and their families about the use and expectations of wearing hearing aids to improve communication.
  • Listening strategies: The process of teaching someone who has a hearing loss different strategies when listening with or without amplification to improve their ability to communicate.
  • Speechreading: The process of using or teaching the understanding communication using visual cues observed from the speaker’s mouth, facial expressions, and hand movements.
  • Auditory Training: The process of teaching an individual with a hearing loss the ability to recognize speech sounds, patterns, words, phrases, or sentences via audition.
  • Unisensory: Therapy philosophy that centers on extreme development of a single sense for improving communication.

Steps included in an aural rehabilitation program for an adult:

  • Assessment and impact of hearing loss
  • Assessment for the use of hearing aids and or assistive listening devices
  • Assessment of listening strategies and speech reading skills
  • Developing a treatment program including the family
  • Delivery of the treatment program
  • Outcome measures

Treatment strategies for adults center on:

  • Hearing aids and or assistive listening device evaluation and orientation
  • Providing therapy to increase listening strategies and speech reading
  • Counseling to ease the adjustment to hearing aids and or assistive listening devices and the possible psychological, emotional, and occupational impacts of hearing loss

Hearing Loss Can be Linked to:

Hearing loss is twice as common in people with diabetes.

Studies show that people with diabetes are twice as likely to have hearing loss. When broken down by age, one study showed that those 60 and younger are at greater risk.

Your hearing may say something about your heart.

Studies show that people with diabetes are twice as likely to have hearing loss. When broken down by age, one study showed that those 60 and younger are at greater risk.

Are hearing loss and dementia linked?

Research not only shows a connection between hearing loss and dementia, but a Johns Hopkins study of older adults found that hearing loss actually accelerates brain function decline. Some experts believe that interventions, like hearing aids, could potentially delay or prevent dementia. Research is ongoing.

Is hearing loss tied to depression?

Research shows that hearing loss is associated with an increased risk of depression in adults of all ages, but is most pronounced in 18 to 69-year-olds. Research also shows that the use of hearing aids reduces depressive symptoms.

Staying fit may also help your hearing.

Research on women’s health shows that a higher level of physical activity is associated with a lower risk of hearing loss. Conversely, a higher body mass index (BMI) and larger waist circumference in women are each associated with a higher risk of hearing loss.

Hearing loss may put you at greater risk of falling.

A Johns Hopkins study showed that people in middle age (40 to 69) with even just mild hearing loss were nearly three times more likely to have a history of falling.

What devices are available for communicating by telephone?

Some hearing aids provide the ability to hear a phone conversation in both ears at the same time. This can greatly add to the clarity of the phone conversation.  Today’s hearing technology can be paired to your cell phone for hands-free cell phone use and increased clarity.
