The Canadian Hearing Institute team is fully committed to offering comprehensive hearing tests for residents local to Blenheim, Ontario.
We can perform a clinical evaluation of a person’s hearing capability with a hearing test, also referred to as an ‘audiometric test’. Committed to bringing back the sounds of life, we want you to clearly hear everyday sounds. We are dedicated to providing accurate hearing tests, we understand the extent of your hearing loss and the quality of your hearing have a direct impact on your quality of life.
Do you often ask people to repeat things? Are you always turning up the volume on the TV or radio? Have you noticed a change in your hearing?
The loss of hearing is often so gradual that it goes unnoticed. Many of our Blenheim clients frequently deny the ongoing effects of hearing loss. When they can’t understand what is being said, they often stop communicating and withdraw from family, friends and social situations. To determine the extent of your hearing ability, we are happy to offer free hearing tests to residents of Blenheim, to evaluate the extent of hearing loss. Upon completion of your hearing test, we can develop an appropriate treatment plan that suits your budget, needs and lifestyle.
A child’s ability to develop communication, language, and social skills can be affected by hearing loss. When a child is evaluated for hearing loss early in life, they are more likely to reach their full potential. If you are a parent who suspects your child is experiencing hearing loss, we advise you to trust your intuition and schedule a thorough hearing test with us at your earliest opportunity.
It is estimated that hearing loss affects about 15% of the population. It’s effects extend beyond the individual losing their hearing to their friends and family as well. Initially, hearing loss often starts with missing the S, T, or K sounds in speech and can sound as if others are mumbling. This can raise frustration levels and have a significant impact on overall communication.
