After a recent bout of high blood pressure, my 85-year-old mom lost a lot of hearing. She now wants to get a hearing aid.
From previous posts, I see that this can be a huge expense with some unethical sources charging up to $11,000 for hearing aids.
What should I look for or avoid? What types of aids are considered the most comfortable, best sound, easy to put in/on? Should she go to an ear-eye-nose doctor or directly to a hearing aid company -- we get mail ads from them constantly.
Any advice or experiences appreciated.
