Hearing loss is a widespread problem and affects not only the individuals suffering from hearing impairment but also their families and friends. Not being able to hear has an effect on simple daily actions such as watching TV, listening to the radio, hearing the phone ringing and having a normal conversation. Realising that the problem exists for someone around you is the first step to helping them help themselves.
Hearing aids, similarly to glasses, need to fit the individual condition. Not all hearing aids work in the same way and are suitable for different types and degrees of hearing loss. While you can buy hearing aids for someone else, in order for the person who will wear them to benefit as much as possible you need to be aware of the exact hearing problem and the most appropriate hearing aid.
Hearing aids are a wonderful present for those who need them. Nonetheless, they are not an accessory but electronic devices with a specific function. Before buying a hearing aid for someone else, first you might wish to consider certain issues:
When buying a hearing aid for someone else make sure that the retailer offers a sufficient trial period, so, if needed, you can return the hearing aid. Every person is different and every hearing impairment condition is unique so the hearing aid of your choice may not be the most ideal for the person for whom it is intended. The usual trial period is around 30 days to let you test the device.
In addition, check the warranty period so if a problem occurs later on the wearer can turn to the supplier for support or refund. If you buy the device for a disabled person or for someone with a chronic illness, you can also check if they are eligible for a relief from VAT.
