One thing I love about helping people hear better is that everyone is different. I enjoy listening to each unique story when I first meet a new client. A lady I met yesterday is 95 years old and still spry. (Do you have to be old to be spry?) She was using rudimentary technology that did not allow her to meet her hearing goals. She’s been wearing her hearing aids intermittently as a result.
We audiologists often focus on the audiogram or on other test results that are in front of us. Test results are important, but her story was an equally important component in the process of discovering the sort of technology and counseling she needs in order to succeed.
