Well folks, what can I say? This has probably been most people’s worst year of their lives. I know it has been mine. So much has been taken from us this year, and I don’t like it. And I know others don’t like it either. Businesses have suffered so much…..some have had to close. People are struggling with isolation, which
How many times have you heard people say this? Hearing aids don’t work……. As a person who wears hearing aids, I can honestly say that YES, THEY DO.

As a hearing impaired woman who wears behind the ear hearing aids, the face mask has added additional stress and worries to my life, thanks to the Coronavirus. I mean most people don’t have a second thought about wearing a mask. They put it on and go about their business. They talk, laugh and hear others as they normally would.
You’ve seen them on tv, in drug stores and even in Walmart. The very cheap hearing aid “amplifiers” and the online hearing aids that cost several hundred dollars. They claim it’s easy to use & that everyone can perform a simplified and easy hearing evaluation on themselves that will customize the hearing aid for their hearing loss and give them
