As a primary caregiver of a loved one (94yrs old) who needed hearing assistance, I understand the value and importance of having a loved one accompany them when speaking with the professional. My husband is Board Certified with Phonak and he always encourages family members/caregivers to accompany the patient. Involving the loved ones family/friend/caregiver is imperative.
