Hearing loss comes on gradually and can have a big impact on a person’s (family) life. Most complain they hear fine; they blame background noise or mumbling of others, and many resist help despite urging of family and friends. This informative class will explain hearing loss, how to get the most out of your audiologist visit, what features in hearing aids are/are not worthwhile buying, effective communication strategies and an overview of assistive listening technologies for help in places where hearing aids alone are unable to deliver. Bring a spouse, bring a friend and attend this lively and fun (yes, this speaker will make it fun) lecture!Presenter: Dr. Juliëtte Sterkens, retired audiologist and a professional speaker with the Hearing Loss Association of America.
