I can’t do without my hearing aid for two weeks


When my car goes in for a service or repair I get given a courtesy car to use while mine is out of action. It’s a given that the courtesy car will be available, all garages are offering one these days.

So what about when my hearing aids need servicing? Can I get courtesy aids to use while mine’s away? Because there’s no way I can go two weeks without my hearing aids, I need to go to work, I need to hear.

My choices are: hear nothing for two weeks, don’t ever service my aids or find someone who offers a courtesy pair.

I’ve been wearing aids for the best part of thirty years now and I’ve never had a pair serviced, I just can’t do without them for two weeks.
