When you visit the Canadian Hearing Institute, you’ll find that we are dedicated to help you bring back all the familiar, joyful sounds that were once part of your day-to-day. When our clients begin to use hearing aids and hear clearly once again, they frequently experience a significant lift in their health and well being. Often, patients realize that their self-sufficiency and interest in socializing has diminished along with their hearing ability. If you think you may need a hearing aid and live in and around Belle River, our pleasant hearing instrument experts are prepared to give you the very best hearing aid service and hearing device repair.

What is the usual life span of a hearing aid?

The usual life expectancy of a hearing aid is three to five years, with proper care. The Canadian Hearing Institute has experienced hearing aid technicians with the skills to resolve a variety of maintenance issues and most technical problems. Typical repairs to your hearing aid can be accomplished in our hearing aid clinic in Chatham-Kent, where we can also perform minor, immediate service to your hearing aid.
