Are you struggling to hear in certain situations? Do you have trouble understanding on the phone? Can you still hear your alarm in the morning? Are you able to hear the smoke alarm while you’re asleep? Do the people you live with complain that the TV is too loud?
Come to the Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT) demonstrations that we hold monthly from September to May. Our mission to create awareness of the technology that is available to help hard of hearing individuals and their families better navigate a hearing world. We know first-hand that hearing aids and cochlear implants do not solve our hearing difficulties alone.
We have assembled an inventory of over 50 devices to enable hard of hearing individuals navigate a hearing world, whether or not they already wear hearing aids or cochlear implants.
Our inventory of over 50 devices is available for you to try. Our devices assist in face-to-face communication, alerting, media and telecommunications. We often have a captioned phone representative and a hearing aid specialist there to answer questions.
If you find a device that meets your needs and want to purchase one, we can provide catalogs and websites where you can purchase directly from the source. We do not sell any devices ourselves.
