Help a Loved One with Hearing Loss
It’s natural to want to help someone with hearing loss.
Being around someone who struggles with hearing loss can be frustrating and put a strain on friends and family, especially when you know that better hearing can improve their quality of life and yours.
Untreated hearing loss can cause a person to lose confidence, withdraw socially, become isolated or even depressed. What appears to be memory loss or dementia may be hearing loss. Depending on the cause of the hearing loss, a person’s balance may be affected.
Trying to get a loved one to take action and deal with their hearing loss isn’t always easy (do the words stubborn and pride come to mind?), but it’s the right thing to do.
We’ve helped concerned family members and friends, just like you, who want to share the gift of better hearing. We can walk you through what to do and say. Don’t wait to help someone suffering from symptoms like these. Be proactive.
How can you help?
- Share your concerns about their hearing with them. Be tactful and be aware that it’s normal for people to become defensive when you bring up the subject. No one likes to admit it’s their hearing that’s a problem.
- Encourage them to visit a hearing expert, but don’t get into an argument about it, that’s a lose-lose battle. Mention it and then move to the next step.
- Call and schedule an appointment with us. Then let your loved one know you did it for them. Most people appreciate your concern and will come in to talk to us and get a hearing test.
- 1 out of 20 will flat out refuse to go, which tells you that this isn’t a priority for them, or their pride is still getting in the way. Remind them that if they see the hearing specialist and the hearing tests show they don’t have a hearing loss, that would be good news!
Financing Your Hearing Aids
Your investment in better hearing is a time-intensive process that, when all is said and done, benefits your quality of life in ways that you may not have experienced in years.
You may not hear better overnight, but by retraining your ears and brain to process sounds that it hasn’t heard in years — a process we can help you with at Vail Hearing Healthcare — your satisfaction with your devices will continue to increase.
Buying a hearing aid is a big step forward in your life, and we want to make sure you make the best possible decision for yourself. And while there’s no getting around the fact that healthcare is a high-ranking expense for many Americans, we do our best at Vail Hearing Healthcare to help you get the treatment you need with financing options and payments that you can afford.
Our practice specializes in finding the right hearing aid for you. Before you focus on a price or which solution is best for you, you will first need to have your hearing tested. Once it is determined you could benefit with better hearing, we will work with your lifestyle and budget while considering the right device for you. We carry most of the major hearing aid manufacturer brands and models, from entry level to high end. We professionally fit and program your hearing devices to your hearing specifications by our licensed audiologist and all our hearing devices come with a manufacturer’s warranty. We offer counseling and exceptional follow up care after you are fit for the life of your hearing instruments to ensure your hearing needs are being met. We also offer a variety of service plans for aftercare to fit your budget.
We believe that the benefits of wearing hearing aids far outweigh their price.

We accept most major insurances
Most insurance plans, including Medicare, cover a diagnostic hearing exam only if your primary care physician orders these tests based on symptoms, conditions, or complaints that would require medical treatment. Medicare does not currently cover routine hearing exams or treatment, including hearing aids and exams for fitting hearing aids. Some insurances also provide a hearing aid benefit. If you are uncertain, call your insurance provider.

Regardless of what type of music they play, musicians are constantly exposed to high-decibel sounds. Because of this high-decibel immersion, it’s crucial for musicians to wear proper ear protection to prevent hearing loss and tinnitus.
Tinnitus is commonly described as a ringing-in-the-ears sensation. This buzzing, whooshing or hissing is generally not caused by an external source and is often caused by hearing loss or other health issues. Seeking treatment from a hearing professional is essential in diagnosing and treating tinnitus.
