Hearing problem

My mother can't hear properly she can hear very less I did ent check up 2 yrs back for her doc said her ears r good this is because of age. After that we didn't take her for check up as she is not willing to go out as she can't walk. Can we use any hearing aid for her or need doctor advice.

First meet an ENT Specialist who will clean up her ear canals and then send her to an audiologist for audiometry and hearing aid trials. You can get a decent RIC type Hearing Aid for about ₹25000. Do not be suckered onto buying the cheaper BTE aids which will only end up as an expensive paperweight at your home!
