While your hearing aid audiologist will work with you to help you master the basics, when it comes to getting used to your new hearing aids, familiarising yourself with how they work and how to insert and remove them is key. Just like anything else, practice makes perfect, and you have to simply get used to them before they feel normal to you.
Start by wearing them at home first, and focusing on one-on-one conversations until you feel more confident. Reading out loud to yourself, chatting to a pet or listening to podcasts, the radio or audiobooks are also good exercises that can help you to get used to your new hearing capabilities, along with your own voice again.
Once you've mastered them in your own home, head outdoors on a quiet walk to take in the sounds you might not be familiar with, before building up to heading out to busier environments and places with a lot more background noise.
