When storing your hearing aids, whether just overnight or for a longer duration, certain practices will ensure their longevity. Always place them in a hearing aid case each night, regardless of the type of battery they use.
If your device uses disposable batteries, it’s a good practice to open the battery door before sealing the case. For optimal care, remove the batteries nightly.
Should you need to store them for an extended time, always remove the batteries to prevent corrosion. And if you own a dehumidifier, make it a routine to store your hearing aids in it every night.
Protecting and Insuring Your Hearing Aids
Consider adding your hearing aids to your Home Contents insurance policy. This ensures that in case of damage or loss, replacements won’t strain your finances.
Always store your hearing aids safely, out of reach from children and pets. It’s noteworthy that dogs find hearing aids particularly tempting to chew on.
If your hearing aids go missing or are stolen, promptly inform both your insurer and your hearing clinic. Many clinics offer temporary replacement hearing aids to tide you over while your insurance claim processes.
After your claim, schedule an assessment for a suitable replacement hearing aid.
