A: The appointment is 30 minutes but the hearing test takes 10-20 minutes depending on age and hearing loss. Initially questions regarding reasons for attending and previous medical history will be asked. The test takes place within a sounds treated booth. Sounds of varying intensities and pitches will be played though headphones and you will be asked to press a button when you hear the sound. The aim is to identify the quietest sounds that can be heard.
A: Discuss your concerns regarding hearing loss and hearing aids with your loved ones. Try to identify whether they share your views and are ready to have a hearing test. It usually takes a number of years for people to accept their hearing loss and commit to using hearing aids. The first step would be to arrange a hearing test and advice session at the Highgate Hospital on a Wednesday morning. It is best if you attend too as hearing loss affects the whole family and your perspective is useful in the evaluation.
