My first encounter with bloom hearing specialists happened quite by accident when I saw on Facebook they were offering free hearing tests and hearing aid trials. I had been unhappy with a hearing aid I had bought previously and was interested in seeing what else was available so I made contact. I thought nothing ventured nothing gained and I haven’t looked back since.
Like most people I was put off wearing hearing aids because of vanity but I simply couldn’t manage anymore by lip-reading. I’m still working and have an active social life and it became increasingly difficult to hear well in group situations, at functions, or to give speeches and be in a big echoey room.
I’ve been surprised at how small and discreet hearing aids are now, the benefits of being able to hear far outweighs my vanity worries especially as they are barely noticeable anyway.
