HEARING CARE ON THE MOVE TO AFTON
Your Local Hearing Care Experts
Depression, anxiety, and isolation, as well as other mental and physical issues, are among the common health problems associated with an untreated hearing loss. However, its effects reach beyond health issues, limiting your capacity to enjoy conversations with family and friends as well as the pleasant sounds of nature abundant in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Rockfish Gap. To better enjoy country life, getting back to a more active social life and reconnecting with family and friends is possible with professional hearing care. However, an office appointment in Charlottesville can include scheduling and traveling challenges as well as some risks to your health.
Hearing at Home, to meet the hearing care needs of Rockfish Gap and Afton, VA residents, providesa mobile hearing service to your home, office, or wherever you are. The new way of living since 2020 has created an increased need for working from home, social distancing and self-isolation, and limiting in-office appointments. None of these were among the reasons for starting our service in 2009, but now, sending our mobile hearing professionals to you is a viable solution to meet the critical hearing care needs of rural Virginians.
The service you expect from a hearing care clinic, such as hearing assessments, hearing aid fittings, cleaning and maintenance for your hearing devices, and more, are also a part of our mobile hearing service provided in the comfort and safety of your home, office, or wherever you happen to be.
A Comprehensive Hearing Assessment
National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) statistics demonstrate that of approximately 36 million Americans who might benefit from hearing care for their hearing loss, only 20% actually seek the help they need. The other 80% needlessly struggle during conversations with their family and friends because their condition goes undiagnosed. More tragic is the fact that treatment is available and requires a very simple hearing assessment to get started.
Hearing at Home makes it easier for Afton, VA residents to start the process of getting help by providing a comprehensive hearing assessment in the comfort of your home, office, or place of business. Our mobile hearing service professional will use up about 30 minutes of your time for the test, and you will receive the results during the same visit.
Providing Advanced Hearing Aid Technology in Afton, VA
Do you visualize those bulky, noisy devices your parents or grandparents struggled with when hearing aids come up in a conversation? Today’s hearing aids are nothing like those outdated models. They’re smaller, lighter weight, more stylish, and are nearly invisible to those around you. Advanced hearing aid technology makes modern hearing aids perform better, producing a higher quality and more natural sound while reducing background noise in various environments. Because they are digital, hearing aids now allow you to link directly to devices,such as your television, cell phone, and computer, for an improved hearing experience.
If hearing aids are the right solution to meet your hearing challenges, your hearing aid specialist from Hearing at Home will provide you with a broad choice of styles from various brand name manufacturers along with the available technology you’re comfortable with. New or existing hearing aid users can take advantage of the expertise of our mobile hearing professionals for device cleaning, maintenance, and adjustment and repair services.
Telehealth Appointments with AVA Care
There are times when even an appointment at your home or office is an inconvenience due to self-isolation or other challenges. For these unique occasions, Hearing at Home provides an additional solution using tele-conferencing. Our Access Video Audiology Care (AVA Care) service meets your hearing care needs by allowing you to connect to your care provider via your cell phone, tablet, or computer for a face-to-face consultation.
Provide Hearing Screenings to Your Employees
We not only send our mobile hearing professionals to your Afton or Rockfish Gap home, but Hearing at Home also gives area employers access to providing the additional health benefit of hearing screenings to your employees. Missed work for an out-of-office appointment can upset the workday flow and cause scheduling challenges, but the quick, comprehensive hearing screenings from our mobile hearing service in your place of business is a solution to these issues.
