Removing the Mask
Be mindful to ensure that your hearing aids are secure when removing the mask. We recommend holding the hearing aid with one hand whilst removing the mask with the other.
Try to find a mask that is secured by
tying strings behind the head instead
of tight elastic bands around the ears. This will assist by taking the pressure
away from the ears and reduce the
risk of losing the hearing aid when
removing the mask.
If a mask that uses elastic is the only
option, we have these tips for you:
Use a headband or strip of fabric, sew two buttons on either end. Use these buttons to loop and secure the mask elastics behind the head.
A large paper clip or shoelace could also be used similarly to secure mask elastics behind the head.
