During this time, some hearing aid patients are experiencing difficulty wearing a mask for fear of loosing their device when putting on or removing their mask.
Even when covered with a loss and damage warranty, it is still a major inconvenience and source of stress. Some will simply choose to not wear their hearing aids with a mask in public as required, but this is not an ideal solution as everyone else’s mouth is covered, making the conversation harder to hear clearly, and their mouths impossible to see, greatly compounding the effects of hearing loss. This can lead to even more social isolation. Annik Hearing Solutions encourages you to use and share the following tips to use and wear the mask while still allowing you to wear the hearing aids safely.
