Travelling with hearing loss

Travelling with Hearing Loss.  Forida had always wanted to travel but was scared of travelling with her hearing loss.  After an appointment at Harley Street Hearing everything changed.

“I was given one pair of Opn miniRITE chargeable hearing aids. 

My audiologist, Jas, helped me to download an app called Oticon ON which helps me to hear straight from my iPhone and helps me to turn the volume up and down.  She showed me how to use everything step by step and how to maintain hygiene. When I went to book another appointment, for the first time I could actually hear everything that the receptionist was saying, She was so lovely and said good luck with your journey with the new hearing aids. I was soo excited. I couldn’t wait to go and explore everything”
