Hello @Starting on a journey , thank you for your message and, YES, another person to be a Fairy Aid champion; (@Sarasa what have you started ??!!) .I really don’t get it, having worn aids since I was 26, take them out, put me in a room of people and all they would get is nods and smiles!!
Unless they are fiddled with they don’t fall out! Maybe mum was fiddling with them cos the battery had run out and she was trying to alter them. All they have to do is ask you how often they need changing week/10 days and change them even if not needed. Saves excess yelling!
I think I would be having very stern words with the powers that be
Mum's aids don't fall out; fitted correctly they stay plugged in; they are soft and molded to her inner ear. If she moves her specs the 'over the ear battery compartment' bit may flip and need to be popped back over her ear, but the inner ear section is so well fitting, it stays put.
I've photocopied and laminated the "how to fit this type of hearing aid" and am very willing to help carers understand "how to".
Maybe I'm naïve, but to me, in these days of staff training and development, recognising the impact that helping a client/resident with an impairment, whatever that may be, is imperative. It gives support, comfort and dignity to the client, knowing their needs are understood and pride to the carer in meeting those needs.
