My OH with vascular dementia has had very poor hearing for years. He tried going privately for aids some time ago, but only got relatively cheap ones and ended up sending them back as he didn't like them. He's started asking about them again. He's now in a care home but I'm worried about them going astray, although he never leaves his room. The ones I've seen are very small. I've been told NHS are as good as any. It might be that his level of understanding takes time to process what's happening. I can't find any posts on this topic. He gets wax etc in them frequently and I'm guessing this will still be an issue with private ones. Anyone any idea?
