Condolences to the family may be expressed at her obituary at Q- How manyyears do headng aids last?, - Tom Myers A - Hearing aids are a lot like cars, and will last longer for the individual who regularly maintains his/her hearing aids (3-5 years or longer). But also like cars, technology is al- ways changing. We are finding that the aver- age person makes a change about every 3 1/2 years. What are our patients saying about us?
