Audiology Home Visits & Home Visits for Hearing Aids

Can hearing aid tests be done at home?

 

Are hearing tests free? What are the benefits of home visits?

These are common questions when searching for a local audiology home visiting service, whatever the reason.  Hearing tests can be done at home and come at no additional cost.

Hearing Aid UK has always offered all their customers free home visiting services and home visits for hearing aids - Including hearing tests, fittings, maintenance, check-ups and much more in the comfort of your own home and at your convenience.

We hope you find some helpful information about common questions, misconceptions and worries about hearing healthcare.  We cover topics like home hearing tests, which hearing aid retailers do home visits, hearing aid fittings at home and hearing tests for the elderly at home.

Hearing Aid Retails Home Visits

Which hearing aid retailers in the UK do home visits?

You'd be surprised how many highstreet retailers don't offer home visits in any capacity - or if they do the service is very limited or chargeable.  Hearing aid dispensing started as a tailor-made home service, but today's audiology prefers to operate their services in their clinics or practices.  This has always surprised us, as most people with hearing loss tend to be the most vulnerable and need such bespoke services. 

 

NHS hearing aids home visits / NHS hearing tests home visits

Like NHS hearing aid drop-in clinics, the NHS service can organise hearing healthcare home visits, but this sometimes depends on what area you live in.  If NHS hearing test home visits and hearing aid services are available locally, then chances are you'll be waiting weeks for an appointment.

Who does home visits for hearing for hearing aids?

Boots Hearingcare Home Visits

Before this company rebranded and started trading as David Ormerod Hearing Centres they did originally provide their patients with a home visiting service. Along with the growing audiology industry and their increased marketing presence – it has resulted in Boots having to reduce their level of the service offered to consumers.  To reflect this they now only provide in-store appointments and do not offer Boots hearing aids home visits or hearing tests at home.

 

Specsavers Hearing Home Visits

Specsavers Hearingcare is quite accommodating if you are unable to visit the store, for whatever reason - they will book an appointment at home for you.  We think that this service is limited to hearing tests and fittings, we are unsure as to whether they can provide maintenance or adjustments when needed.

However, we do know that an at-home visit, with Specsavers, will cost you approximately £100.  This may be due to the number of services they attend and supply hearing devices for the NHS in the hearing loss community.  In result of this, charging ensures the at-home service is warranted.

 

Hidden Hearing Home Visits

With this company having locations in both England and Wales, so Hidden Hearing can cater to those who require a home visiting service at no extra charge.

 

Bloom Hearing Home Visits

Similar to Hidden Hearing, Bloom Hearing can also accommodate their patients with an at-home service for their hearing loss needs for no additional fee.

 

Amplifon Home Visits

Currently, Amplifon does offer a home visiting service, but this is a chargeable service at around £30.  It is important to know that they are unable to provide this service nationwide - please check whether your location is covered.

 

Scrivens Home Visits

Scrivens is a small audiology company and does not at this time provide any home visiting services - whether this will change, we are unsure.  No matter who you book with - always check if there is an additional fee before arranging an appointment to avoid any surprises.
