Tips for traveling with hearing loss

  Posted June 20, 2019

Regardless of whether you’re taking a quick business trip or an extended holiday, if you’ve got hearing loss, it’s always a good idea to plan ahead. Doing so will reduce the time and effort you spend on your hearing loss. Here are a few of the essentials to help you get ready when traveling with hearing loss.

What to pack

A day or two ahead of time, make a packing list so you don’t forget any of your hearing device essentials. A checklist of the basics include:

  • Hearing aid storage case/drying container
  • Small hearing aid dehumidifier
  • Hearing aid splash protectors or wind sleeves, if your plans include active outdoor activities, such as camping and hiking
  • Adapter for your charger if you’re traveling abroad
  • Extra batteries
  • Cleaning kit
  • Hearing aid accessories

Before you leave, you may want to check in with your hearing healthcare professional. Ask them to check your hearing devices to make sure they are clean and working properly. Tell them where you are going and what types of listening environments you anticipate. Together you can determine what adjustments, if any, need to be made to your devices so you can hear effectively while you’re away from home.
