Explaination

When hearing aids are not going to be in use for some hours or overnight, disengage the battery to make it last longer.

Clients with limited vision or poor motor skills will be able to close the door and insert the hearing aid easily. Never leave hearing aids where they can get lost, misplaced, or damaged. Safe storage places are drawer or container.
