HEARING CARE ON THE MOVE TO BARBOURSVILLE
Your Local Hearing Care Experts
It’s the little things in life, such as the sound of chirping crickets in the evening, the wind in the tops of the trees, bird songs, and the sound of your children or grandchildren playing, that makes life worth living. When conversations with family and friends becomes a struggle or the pleasant sounds of rural life begin to disappear, it is time to seek help for your hearing loss. Getting a hearing assessment done or receiving hearing care, even in nearby Charlottesville, can be a health risk as well as a scheduling and traveling challenge.
Hearing at Home, responding to a need for easier and more convenient hearing care in Barboursville, VA, provides a mobile hearing service to your home or office. How we live and work is changing drastically due to working at home, social distancing, self-isolation, and the need to limit in-office appointments of all types, making an alternative means of providing hearing care a challenge. Since 2009, we have met a variety of challenges for Virginians by sending out our mobile hearing professionals to wherever you are.
Hearing assessments, hearing aid fittings, care and maintenance for your existing hearing devices, and other hearing healthcare needs are among the services our hearing care specialists can address in your home, office, or place of business.
A Comprehensive Hearing Assessment
The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) reports that just 20% of about 36 million Americans with a hearing loss actually seek the help they need, though they would certainly benefit from treatment. Consequently, the other 80% never identify the problem and needlessly struggle to enjoy the benefits of better hearing and communication. The first step to getting help for your hearing loss and a better quality of life is a hearing assessment.
Hearing at Home is making it easier and more convenient for Barboursville, VA residents to seek the help they need through scheduling a comprehensive hearing assessment in the comfort of their home, office, or place of work. Your mobile hearing professional will require only about a half hour of your time to conduct a hearing assessment, and will provide you with the results during the same visit.
Providing Advanced Hearing Aid Technology in Barboursville, VA
It doesn’t take a lot of imagination to recall the clunky, bulky contraptions your grandparents wore whenever someone mentions hearing aids. In spite of the fact that hearing aids have been nothing like that for a couple of decades, the stigma persists. Modern hearing aids are smaller, lighter weight, more fashionable, and go unnoticed by those around you. The higher quality and more natural sound produced by more advanced technology and better performance reduces background noise in various environments. Digital hearing aids also make it possible to link directly to devices, such as your television, cell phone, and computer, to improve your hearing experience.
While hearing aids are not the right solution to meet all hearing loss challenges, those who can benefit from them will enjoy the fact that your Hearing at Home hearing aid specialist has a wide selection of brand names, styles, and levels of technology to choose from. Our mobile hearing professionals also provide cleaning, maintenance, and adjustment and repair support services to both new and existing hearing aid wearers.
Telehealth Appointments with AVA Care
Meeting in your location to receive hearing care is more convenient, but various health and scheduling challenges sometimes make an appointment at your home or office unworkable. For those instances, Hearing at Home provides tele-conferencing consultations with your service provider using Access Video Audiology Care (AVA Care). This service allows you access to a face-to-face appointment with a hearing care specialist via your cell phone, tablet, or computer.
Provide Hearing Screenings to Your Employees
Besides coming to your Barboursville home, Hearing at Home also sends our mobile hearing professionals to your office or place of business, allowing area employers to provide hearing screenings to their employees as a health benefit. Time missed from work to attend an appointment can create scheduling headaches and workflow interruption, but we provide a solution by providing quick, comprehensive hearing screenings at your place of business. Besides overcoming the challenges of missed work and production, our service encourages broader participation in an important aspect of the overall healthcare of your employees.
