The Hearing Rehabilitation Process

The Hearing Rehabilitation Process is a comprehensive approach, meticulously developed to support you reintegrating into the world of sound in a gradual and thoughtful manner.

This program is just one component of a range of solutions your dedicated Hearing Care Professional selects specifically for you, based on a thorough assessment and your unique needs.

Better Hearing Outcomes

Adjusting to new sounds can be a big step, and we understand it might feel a bit overwhelming. That’s why we expertly guide you through our six-week rehabilitation process.

At the heart of this process is a focus on both teaching you how to make the most of your hearing system and helping you acclimatise to the experience of hearing again. Your journey through this process is highly personalised, delivered carefully in planned stages that enhance your auditory experience and allow you brain to adjust to the extra processing required. 

The Hearing Rehabilitation Process adopts an integrated approach, considering both the mechanical aspects of hearing and the cognitive processes involved, as well as your lifestyle and specific requirements.

This process of gradual rehabilitation has been proven to improve hearing outcomes and speech intelligibility. For full details see below.
