A new procedure helps seniors address a common problem that many have in adjusting to new hearing instruments due to experiencing new sounds that they may find confusing and irritating. As a result, those aged 70-85 years may simply choose not to wear their hearing instruments or even abandon them altogether. The new intervention procedure seeks to ensure better wearer compliance by asking seniors to wear their instruments for a set amount of time and gradually increase the duration daily over a 30-day period. They begin with one hour for three days and then increased the time by one-hour increments every three days. The program helped half of the subjects increase their instrument usage from zero to ten consecutive hours.
