Avalon Hearing builds trust through a warm, more personal approach to your hearing care
As obsessed as we Americans are with our healthcare, we still don’t pay enough attention to hearing loss. The reason for this lapse may be the confusing information we’ve received. Either our doctors treat our loss of hearing as just another medical condition, placing us into a generic queue of swift tests and treatments, or we decide to diagnose and treat our hearing loss ourselves by grabbing a cheap hearing aid from the store in the same way we pick up “+2 Readers” off the rack.
But hearing loss shouldn’t be trifled with. Not hearing well compromises you when it comes to safety, learning, and social situations. It affects how you interact with everyone around you, especially your family. Of equal importance, uncorrected hearing loss can have a negative effect on the brain. In fact, people who ignore their hearing loss experience a 30% to 40% decline in cognitive abilities and the condition may lead to dementia.
The Hearing Healthcare Providers at Avalon Hearing Aid Centers believe no one should have to live one minute longer without proper hearing health care. Far from offering a fast hearing test and standard treatment or an off-the-shelf quick fix, Avalon Hearing takes the time to get to know you and learn how your loss affects your life. To this end, co-founder and owner Betty Vosters-Kemp, BC-HIS encourages each of us to take three simple steps:
Avalon’s road to better hearing begins with a complimentary Educational Hearing Test and Consultation. The 10-step exam leads to a comprehensive understanding of your hearing. In addition, the no-obligation visit lasts 90 minutes so that you can thoroughly discuss your unique hearing loss, your lifestyle needs, and what you hope to achieve with the right hearing solution.
At Avalon, your Hearing Healthcare Provider will administer six additional tests. Why so many extra tests? They guarantee the best hearing aid fitting possible. Actually, over 600 different hearing aids are available for choosing, enough to fill an entire drugstore, let alone one section of a shelf. The choice can be overwhelming without the gentle guidance from a competent and caring Hearing Healthcare Provider.
Few health conditions affect our quality of life as much as a loss of hearing. Even a mild hearing loss can impact your overall health and sense of well being in negative ways. To better understand the experience a loved one may be going through, cover your ears tightly with your hands. You now have a mild hearing loss. Then, try to have a conversation. It’s easy to imagine how loss of hearing can lead to frustration, embarrassment, alienation, and even depression. And these feelings can disrupt a person’s family life.
People often assume that hearing loss is caused by the aging process but there are more baby boomers with hearing problems than people over the age of 70. Untreated hearing loss leads to avoidance of social situations such as going to restaurants, parties and cultural events.
Hearing loss presents enormous challenges, which is why founder Betty Vosters-Kemp believes strongly in making a lifetime commitment to every patient who entrusts Avalon with his or her hearing. This mutual trust begins during the 90-minute complimentary consultation and evolves into a lifelong relationship.
You are encouraged to call or visit Avalon with any concerns or questions you may have.
