Are you researching your options and have questions on what to expect? Do you know what to expect once you friend or family member gets a new hearing device? I know from past experience while traveling the rocky road of hearing loss with my grandmother, previous Panels held at HLAA meetings helped me understand what to expect, from both the medical profession and the individuals who depend on the devices for daily life. Join us for a great panel discussion.
We are excited to have Michele Linder present at our HLAA chapter meeting on November 17th from 10 AM to noon on traveling with a hearing loss. Get over your fear of traveling with hearing loss! Michele has good tips and strategies on conquering solo traveling. Michele has no usable hearing and gets by on lipreading (and sometimes notes back and forth) in life as well as traveling in foreign countries successfully. Also, chapter members Charla and Kevin will tell us how to make sure cruise ships are accessible to our hearing loss.
Our next HLAA chapter meeting will be Saturday, September 16 from 10 AM to Noon. We’re having a pot luck brunch, so bring your favorite brunch food! There will also be time for visiting, sharing ideas, and even a game to help us all interact a little more.
We meet at the Sanderson Center in classroom B-C. This room has a hearing loop and we’ll have captions available as well.
