For hearing aid and cochlear implant users, one of the most important people in our lives is our hearing care professional (HCP).
This person has more influence on my peace of mind, bank account and quality of life than I would normally give to anyone not a husband, child, parent or BFF. I see my HCP more frequently than I see my family doctor, probably because hearing loss poses more barriers than other health challenges. It makes me more dependent on technology, which is prone to becoming blocked, broken, flooded and generally more stuffed up than any other body part, internal or external.
Cubex audiologist Adam Shulberg on treating hearing loss in the 21st Century
“The biggest misconception people have about hearing impairment is that the hearing aid is the solution,” says Adam Shulberg, managing director of Cubex. “The important thing to understand with hearing loss is that it is a communication disorder. And as such it doesn’t just affect the person, but their friends, family and everybody surrounding them. So we believe it is vital to involve those people at the outset.”
This approach sums up the way that Cubex has been approaching the task of helping people with hearing issues since it was set up by Adam’s father Monty over 40 years ago. While the word ‘audiologist’ will not be familiar to many people, the services they offer most definitely will be.
