Hearing is crucial for interaction with the world, and in this modern world, both commercially and socially, relationships are paramount to success.


There are numerous studies showing hearing impairment to have links to earlier on set dementia and Alzheimer's disease. A 2008 study by National Institutes of Health found that diabetics were twice as likely to have mild to moderate hearing loss! This was confirmed in 2012 by research from the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.


Often, hearing loss is put to the back of the queue of jobs to sort out, or ignored altogether - unofficial lip reading, guessing, text messaging, social avoidance.

Hearing can deteriorate very slowly, and individuals may not realise that the closest people in their lives are having to speak more slowly, more loudly.


The longer a hearing loss is left untreated, the more a person adapts his or her life to fit it; inevitably this leads to a smaller and smaller life experience. The brain becomes habituated to poorer hearing. 


The more a person adapts to hearing loss, and the longer it takes hold, the further they drift away from the reality of the sounds of life, and immediacy of living.


The gradual forgetting of the detail of small daily sounds, and tolerance of louder sounds. It’s a very human thing, when unchallenged in their view, for people to make themselves at home where they are and create a new normal.

Signs You Should Invest in Hearing Aid Repairs

Consider the signs that your hearing aid requires repairs.

  • Knowledgeable team: They can examine the device and determine the problem. It may only require a minor adjustment to get it operating efficiently.

  • There is no sound coming out of your hearing aids: If you are struggling to get sound from your hearing aids, first, be sure that the volume is not too low. 

  • You hear static coming from the device: Static can indicate that your hearing aid should undergo a repair service. This sign can signal that there is moisture in your device, which our audiologist can remedy and provide you with advice for preventing this issue in the future.

  • Your hearing aid is uncomfortable to wear: If you notice that your device feels uncomfortable to wear or have dropped it and there is damage, you should get them repaired. You are less likely to wear your hearing device if it is uncomfortable, or your quality of sound may have diminished, which can make it hard to cope. Our team provides excellent aftercare support and will ensure that your device fits comfortably.

If you have any of these issues or any other concerns with your device, our professional team can assist you with a quality repair service.

Tips Regarding Hearing Aid Repairs

Take note of our tips to get more value out of your hearing aids and prevent the need for a repair.

  • Keep your hearing aids clean: Ear wax and other debris can get trapped in your hearing devices, which can clog the microphone and speaker and lead to static or feedback. Be sure to clean your hearing aids daily with a clean cloth to prevent an excessive build-up of debris.

  • Keep your ears clean: Keeping your ears clean from wax can help to minimise the need for device repairs. You can easily clean your ears with a washcloth as part of your daily bathing routine. If you think you have more than the normal amount of earwax secretion, our team can give you additional advice about how to prevent excessive build-up clogging of your hearing aids.

  • Keep your hearing aid dry: Moisture can easily accumulate in your hearing aids without your realising. Prolonged moisture exposure can lead to your device requiring a repair, so be sure to follow the guidelines for caring for your hearing aids.
