How to Navigate Halloween with Hearing Aids
Halloween is coming!
Want to hand out candy this year?
Can’t hear your doorbell?
You may need a hearing aid! At CCMC Hearing Care, you’ll receive an audiological screening to find your level of hearing loss. If a hearing aid is right for you, you’ll be fitted for the type of hearing aid that suits your lifestyle.
How can you enjoy Halloween more with hearing aids?
Watching scary movies?
Horror movies can be filled with screams and other loud sounds, so you’ll want to make sure your hearing aids are adjusted to your volume limit. Hearing aids amplify noise, but not all sounds at the same level. You can decide at which volume your hearing aids will amplify the loudest sounds before they become painful. If you’re not sure of your limit or want to be safe, you can lower the overall hearing aid volume in anticipation of louder sounds.
Going trick or treating with your grandchildren?
Make sure you’ve changed your hearing aid batteries or recharged them. You wouldn’t want to lose your hearing in the middle of the neighborhood at night! There are multiple types of hearing aid batteries that last for different time periods:
- Size 10 — 3-7 days
- Size 312 — 3-10 days
- Size 13 — 6-14 days
- Size 675 — 9-20 days
You may also want to use a hearing aid clip and cord to keep track of your hearing aids. If hearing aids aren’t fitted correctly, they could fall out and get damaged. If your hearing aids feel loose, CCMC Hearing Care can help fit them to your ear.
