Coordinated Hearing Care
Every patient has a different path on their hearing health journey and most often they start with a hearing assessment so that our Audiologists can get a baseline and find out where they are at.
If there are medical problems underscoring hearing impairment or loss, our team will coordinate with their primary care physician and/or an ear, nose, and throat specialist.
Understanding a patient’s full medical history is an important part of developing the most effective and beneficial solutions.
Rather than simply targeting specific symptoms, INHSS adopts a holistic approach. We strive to not only treat ailments but improve each senior’s total quality of life.
In-House Hearing Aids for All
Nothing should stand between a senior and quality hearing care.
We provide comprehensive, personalized hearing aid care that includes initial screenings, fittings, repairs, and adjustments.
Adapting to a hearing aid can take some trial and error. INHSS audiologists are with seniors every step of the way.
For seniors adapting to hearing aids for the first time can seem daunting however, with the advancements in hearing technology and the help and guidance of our audiologists, it is easy.
We specialize in both In-the-Ear (ITE) and Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids for seniors of all levels of hearing impairment.
We work with several of the best hearing aid manufacturers in the world and have a variety of hearing technology options so that we can provide seniors with the best hearing device for their unique type of hearing loss, lifestyle, and physical needs.
What type of hearing aid is best?
Hearing aids are an incredible technology that has improved drastically over the years. Smart hearing aids essentially take a sound, amplify that sound, and send that amplified sound to the ears of the person wearing them. Today hearing devices are so advanced and discreet that more and more patients are seeing the benefit of wearing them.
Untreated hearing loss often leads to isolation and loneliness especially for seniors however, hearing aids improve communication, build confidence, and often help patients enjoy the little things in life again.
There are many different types of hearing aids; some go behind your ear, some go in the ear, some use a custom impression to create an earmold to fit the patient’s ear canal perfectly. There are different styles, colors, sizes, technology levels and our audiologists are passionate about getting to know every patient and guiding them to finding the best fit for them and their hearing loss.
Choosing the right model will fall on personal preference and medical necessity. Every patient can discuss their needs with the audiology staff to determine the best fit for them.
“Thank you again for your willingness to keep working with us. It is such a huge benefit for our residents, tenants, and their family. I am so grateful for your services.”
