How long do hearing aids typically last?
Hearing aids usually last approximately 4-6 years. They can last longer in some cases, however hearing generally decreases significantly over that time period requiring hearing aid replacements. Fortunately, technology also improves over time so replacing hearing aids not only addresses hearing changes but also provides improved benefits over time. The Alberta government program Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) and other agencies such as Workers Compensation Board Alberta (WCB) provide hearing aid financial support every 5 years as they realize that hearing changes significantly over a 5-year timeframe. If you have a significant CHANGE in your hearing loss, contact us to determine if there is a chance to renew your hearing aid claim sooner than the 5 year period based on these changes.
