One in three individuals aged 65-74 have hearing loss. When you look at the population 75 and older, nearly half have some degree of hearing loss! Of adults age 70 and older, less than 1 out of 3 people who could benefit from a hearing aid will ever try one. Hearing loss can negatively influence quality of life, especially when it coincides with other communication barriers such as visual impairment, physical limitations and cognitive barriers.
At Merit Hearing we are specifically structured to help these individuals who may live with a caregiver, in assisted living, or independent care.
More Convenient – We can bring hearing diagnostic testing and hearing aid fitting equipment to the care facility to allow easy access to your provider. All work can be provided on-site in the comfort of your favorite chair. No inconvenient trip to the doctor’s office for any visit.
Experienced – Our providers are experienced audiologists with doctorates from the second best Audiology program in the nation, The University of Iowa. Each with more than 10 years of experience in the field, we can find a solution that fits any need.
More affordable – We have developed four attractive hearing aid plans which include a hearing test, a pair* of custom hearing aids, and a hearing aid fitting. All styles of hearing aids are available in these bundle prices, including Behind-The-Ear (BTE), In-the-ear (ITE), Completely-in-Canal (CIC) and Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) instruments.
*If only one hearing aid is necessary, the cost of the plan will be reduced to reflect the price of a single hearing aid rather than two.
