Hearing Aid Life Hacks – Steve Claridge of HearingAidKnow – #10
Treble Health Tinnitus & Hearing Podcast
Steve ClaridgeSo I think it took me a long time to come to terms with my hearing loss. So I think I was probably five years old when I first got diagnosed. My parents first noticed I was missing things. And it took me many years to sort of be comfortable with wearing hearing aids. So I think if I say any, you know, strong message to anybody is just don't worry about being seen wearing a hearing aid. They don't want to look old. They don't want to look stupid, they don't want to look different, really. It's just all in your own mind, really, that perception that you're being viewed badly just because you're wearing a hearing aid. And I mean, now I'm uncomfortable with that. I tell everybody, people will find it their lives easier if they just accept the fact they need a hearing aid, use it to its full potential, and try not to worry too much about it.https://youtu.be/dfoGlY8vpxQSteve Claridge of Hearingaidknow.com with Ben Thompson, AuD.Ben Thompson, AuDWelcome to Episode 10 of the Pure Tinnitus & Hearing Podcast. This is your host, Ben Thompson. Today I am with Steve Claridge, who is from Hearing Aid Know. So he's going to teach us a lot about hearing aids and what we need to know. We're happy to have Steve on as a guest. Steve, thank you for being here. We're happy to feature the great work you've been doing with Hearing Aid Know, and your own experiences, in terms of the hearing journey. Steve ClaridgeWell, thanks for thanks for inviting me on firstly. So Hearing Aid Know is basically an information website for people with hearing loss, tinnitus, and you know, just any any related problems really. I started it about 15 years ago, it was just a blog, then about my own hearing loss. So I was just kind of venting about my own problems, really. And I got to know other people that were writing about their hearing loss. And it just kind of snowballed from there. So about sort of five, six years ago, another guy, Jeff came on board. he's a he's an audiologist from Dublin. So it's kind of nice now that we've got my perspective, as a hearing aid wearer, and Jeff's perspective as a hearing professional. So yeah, we're just trying to get information out to people really.Ben Thompson, AuDWhat is the most important information that you're trying to share with the community right now entering 2021?Steve ClaridgeI think it, I think it's been, I think a key thing has been for a long time is I think a lot of people don't understand the sort of complexities of buying hearing aids or getting fitted. And I think that's what turns a lot of people away, you know, we know that probably 40 or 50% of people that come into a practice to get a meeting, decide not to not to get, you know, not to take the hearing aid, they take it back. No, we're not interested. So I think people need information about that to understand the problems, especially for new hearing aid users what it is not just a case of necessarily going in popping the thing in your ear works perfectly. There's these hurdles there. So I think we need to get past that, you know, so that more people can pick up hearing aids, use them, find benefit from it, rather than just either sitting in the drawer or, or returning it to the audiologistBen Thompson, AuDYeah, and it's very important what you're providing with Hearing Aid Know because everyone's going online to search for answers, whether that is reviews, or a second opinion, or to get a recommendation to treat their hearing loss or tinnitus. What are the big trends that you are seeing as we are starting 2021? What are the trends in terms of technology? And how someone can actually get hearing aids on their ears using telehealth and the internetSteve ClaridgeWell, I'm pretty pleased the way things have been going recently, actually. I want people to be able to just go in and basically buy hearing aids like they would a laptop or a brand new mobile phone. Obviously,
