A Personal Message from Owner,
Chris Arnold

Nobody should have to deal with the pain of watching their parents, spouse, or grandparents lose their hearing, their personality, and their confidence.

Yet hundreds of local families experience this challenge every year.

Having helped families across the Kitchener Frederick Street, Kitchener Greenbrook Drive, Guelph, Simcoe, and Waterloo communities for over 70 years – and as a family business ourselves – it’s been a huge mission of ours to ensure that families like yours stay connected through better hearing.

Through a methodical process of best practices established over three generations, Arnold Hearing Centres is the most trusted family-focused hearing care provider with a team of fifteen hearing care experts across five locations.

Hand on heart, if you or a loved one is looking for the right experts to partner with to achieve better hearing for life, then you’re in the right place and I am delighted to meet you and hope that you find everything that you’re looking for throughout this website.

If you do, however, have any questions or need any form of advice, then you can request a callback from a trusted local hearing professional by clicking here.

The Different Ways We
Help Local Families

Hearing Assessments

When Was Your Last Hearing Assessment?

Although we all regularly have our eyes tested, our teeth checked, and our blood pressure tested, hardly any of us regularly test our hearing.

Yet with the latest data reporting that 1 in 8 adults have a hearing challenge and the World Health Organization predicting that hearing loss will double by 2050, a regular hearing assessment should be added to all of our lists of priority health checks.

The biggest challenge with hearing loss is that it often happens slowly and gradually, which means that it’s impossible to notice the day-to-day changes with no way to compare your hearing today to what it was once like.

But by simply having a regular non-invasive hearing assessment, you can ensure that your hearing health remains a priority and any early signs of a hearing challenge can be properly dealt with at source rather than when it’s too late.

Hearing aids in different colors

Prescription Hearing Aid Technology

Small, Discreet, and Even Invisible Prescription Hearing Aids

One of the biggest things that hold most people back from addressing a hearing challenge is the outdated stigma that is associated with prescription hearing aids.

Although it’s true that none of us grow up looking forward to the day that we can wear hearing devices, today’s technology is much different from the large, clunky devices that helped fuel the stigma in years gone by.

The truth is that today’s technology is small, discreet, and, in some cases, even invisible. In fact, many of the families that we work with tell us that their friends and/or colleagues have never even noticed they are wearing them.

Best of all, with Bluetooth connectivity, long-lasting rechargeable batteries, and the ability to stream music, phone calls, and audio to your prescription hearing aids, they no longer just amplify your hearing, but they also amplify your ability to connect with the world around you.

Earwax Removal

Earwax Removal Experts For the Kitchener, Guelph, Simcoe, and Waterloo Communities

If your ears feel blocked, or if you feel that you’re struggling to hear as well as you once did, then there’s a strong chance that it may be due to an over-accumulation of earwax.

Although highly common, if left untreated, a buildup of earwax can cause many challenges, including a temporary or a sudden hearing loss, a feeling of fullness in your ear, dizziness, headaches, balance issues, and ear pain.

Yet the solution is simple, pain-free, and effective. By visiting a hearing care expert at Arnold Hearing Centres, you can have your ears professionally cleaned using state-of-the-art equipment to ensure you’re hearing better and your ears well and truly receive some much-needed love.
