Supporting someone on their journey to better hearing is important to their success, especially accompanying them to their first appointment. Whether you’re a friend, a family member, or a spouse, you offer the provider a different perspective on the patient’s unique hearing experience and daily lifestyle.

The consultation appointment and additional follow-ups are a great way to facilitate conversations of understanding and support on both sides of the relationship. From communication tips to learning more about your loved one’s unique hearing loss and treatment options, being as proactive as possible in their better-hearing journey will help not only your loved one but you as well.
