Service summary

It takes time to adapt to using hearing aids – getting used to new sounds as well as managing the hearing aids themselves. Our Hear to Help services enable people to make the most of their hearing aids and manage their hearing loss effectively.

Our Hear to Help staff and volunteers can provide support with the following:

  • tubing
  • minor repairs
  • ear mould cleaning and battery replacement 
  • training on maintenance of hearing aids 
  • advice and support on making the most of the hearing aids information and signposting to other services introduction to other useful equipment.

These services are provided in the community through a mix of home visits and drop-in services (hearing aid maintenance at our drop ins i.e. batteries and tubing are only available to Salisbury hospital audiology patients). All our services are delivered in partnership with and with the support of local hospital audiology departments.
