Hey there,


As you well know, the advancements in hearing aid treatments are incredible, with many people now finding that their hearing is even better than it was before they had a hearing loss!

One development, in particular, has been a massive hit with those who love to catch up on the latest series with their loved ones but struggle to achieve the perfect sound for everyone: a TV streamer.

What is a TV streamer, and how can it help your hearing?

A TV streamer is a brilliant solution for those times where one person feels the sound is too loud, while the other feels it’s too low, as it gives the person with the hearing aid total control.

This is because the TV streamer sends a TV’s audio output directly to your hearing aids and gives you a personal set of controls to decide the amount of sound you want to hear.

All the major manufacturers – from Widex to ReSound – offer their own TV streamers, and if you want to avoid arguments over volume, then we can help you there!

Just give us a call at (336) 295-1064, and we’ll happily tell you all you need to know and get you set up.

Patient Stories

Throughout Hearing Health Awareness Month, the team has been reaching out to patients about their experiences.

It’s been a fantastic process, and we’ve been heartened by your responses. This is a small extract of what our patient Dr. Michael had to say about Aim Hearing and Audiology Services:

I can assure you there is not a better hearing aid provider or audiologist that I know of, and I have been to several… It’s been an outstanding experience from day one!” 

If you’d like to share your journey to better hearing, get in contact with us! You can find a range of patient stories on our website.

Updates from the Office (More Like ‘Pup’dates!)

As you know, the team at Aim Hearing and Audiology Services has a special place in their heart for two important members Molly and Stella – the clinic’s much-loved therapy dogs. 

We’re delighted to share that, after a bit of a rocky start, and a few trips to UPS, Stella is socializing with our patients a lot more, which we (literally) hear is bringing joy to those who come to our office.

In other news, it feels amazing to say that we won this year’s Better Business Bureau (BBB) Torch Award for Ethics!

This is the most prestigious honor BBB presents to businesses, with judges selecting their winners based on high standards of honesty, integrity, and transparency.

The award is a testament to the hard work our team put in every day to ensure you get the very best treatment and service in all of North Carolina.

How Hearing Treatment Can Prevent Dementia

Twenty-eight leading experts have suggested that cases of dementia in America could be reduced by 40 percent if the general public addresses 12 key risk factors.

High on their list is encouraging people to protect their ears in high-stress environments and seeking treatments when someone first notices hearing loss symptoms.

Studies show that your hearing is crucial in how your brain processes information. As a result, researchers believe that hearing loss stops your brain from functioning perfectly, reducing your overall cognitive capacity.

Social isolation, often a side effect of untreated hearing loss, may add to this problem.

If you know someone who has a concern, contact the team about a comprehensive hearing assessment – the best way to diagnose an issue.
