hearingloopThere is no doubt that hearing aids assist people who are hard of hearing, but their effectiveness in group settings can sometimes be questionable due to background noises. This is why many public places that have a lot of background noise – such as hospitals and subways – have installed hearing loops.

Hearing loops allow people with hearing aids to clearly understand sounds in a speaker system, even in high traffic areas. By using a sound system that links to your hearing aid, hearing loops send sounds directly from the sound system to your hearing aid.

As you age, your hearing continues to change. Even small changes can make a big difference in your hearing health. That’s why it’s important to have your hearing checked regularly and make sure your hearing aids are fulfilling your needs.

 

My Happy Haven

We will be donating a portion of all hearing aid sales during the month of July to My Happy Haven, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing beautiful bedroom makeovers for women with cancer.

My Happy Haven gathers volunteers and sponsors to build sanctuaries so that the people they help will have a place to relax and heal from the challenges of their disease. You may have heard of My Happy Place, the sister organization to My Happy Haven, that focuses on makeover projects for children. 

"My Happy Haven is a community based non-profit organization, comprised of volunteers dedicated to making a real difference in the life of a woman facing the fear and struggles of a cancer diagnosis. We do this by providing these women with a bedroom makeover, giving them an environment in which to rest peacefully and heal from the effects of cancer and its’ treatments. We work closely with the woman so we can offer her a bedroom that reflects her personal needs and desires."

Spring HearingTake good care of your hearing.

That’s the message our audiologists want to spread this May during Better Speech and Hearing Month. Speech and Hearing are two of life's greatest gifts. We need them to communicate and enjoy the many sounds the world has to offer.

However, the gift of hearing can be lost if we don't take proper care of our ears.  People lose their hearing all too often because they expose themselves to conditions that are damaging.

Here are some simple ways you can take better care of your hearing without having to change your lifestyle.
