Value Audiology & Hearing Aid Center provides a full range of services and products focused on your hearing fitness. From hearing evaluations to hearing aid fittings with devices and accessories that feature the latest technology, all our services have the goal of helping you hear better and protect the hearing you have.
The following is an overview of the hearing services we offer.
Auditory Rehabilitation Training
Aural Rehab or Auditory Rehabilitation Training is the process of providing training and treatment to improve hearing for those who are hearing impaired. Hearing rehabilitation services focus on adjusting to hearing loss, making the best use of hearing aids, exploring assistive devices, managing conversations, and taking charge of communication.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
When it comes to hearing aids and specialized earplugs, custom fitting is important – not only for comfort, but for optimum performance. Our staff will work with you to provide custom-fit earmolds for your hearing aids or earplugs.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
If you suspect you might need hearing aids, the first step with us is a hearing evaluation to determine the type and extent of your hearing loss. Gathering information from your case history and hearing tests, we’ll evaluate which treatments and types of hearing aids are best suited to your needs and discuss their differences with you. Depending on which style you choose, we’ll take impressions of your ears for custom earmolds. You’ll also be able to try out different hearing aid styles right in the office. As always, decisions about your hearing are ultimately in your hands.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Hearing aids occasionally need maintenance or repairs, and our office provides this service, as well. Some repairs can be completed the same day you bring them into the office, but major damages may require us to send them out to the manufacturer. In the interim, we will make sure your hearing needs are taken care of. If you hearing aids ever need adjustments or just don’t seem to be working right, feel free to bring them into our experienced staff.
For those who have always taken healthy hearing for granted, facing the reality of hearing loss is unknown territory. Taking the first step to getting your hearing tested by a hearing care professional can be overwhelming, but it’s vital to getting an accurate understanding of the extent of your hearing loss and how it can best be treated.
Live Speech Mapping
Real-ear measurement is an effective way to measure how well analog hearing aids work, but with digital hearing aids, Live Speech Mapping provides us with an even more accurate picture of how well you’re hearing with your new devices. As part of our hearing aid evaluation and fitting process, we utilize live speech mapping so you and your family members can immediately see how your hearing aids are helping you.
Musician's Ear Plugs and Monitors: Evaluation and Fitting
Whether you’re a musician or someone who works in the industry, exposure to damaging noise levels on a regular basis compromises your hearing unless you wear hearing protection. For musicians who need to understand and process sounds blocked by traditional headphones and earplugs, we offer custom-fit earplugs and monitors. These specialized hearing protection tools block out harmful noise levels while preserving enjoyment of the music you love.
