Jennifer kindly agreed to come and speak about hearing at three North Shore seniors residences where I provide programming for the residents. She gave an engaging presentation covering a numbers of issues around hearing loss as we age including stages people go through when their hearing declines, what to expect when getting your hearing tested and practical advice about purchasing hearing devices. Jennifer’s talk generated many questions and spirited discussion among the residents attending. I listened to the presentation 3 times and learned something new at each session, including strategies on how to cope with my husband’s hearing decline. A big thank you to Jennifer for giving of her time for these very necessary information presentations. We all need to learn the basics of hearing loss.
