SPEAKERS Joyce Haynes 

Joyce comes to us with a great amount of experience on the topic of hearing health as it impacts older adults and their loved ones. She has observed their challenges with communication and the frustration and barriers it creates. Joyce believes that Education is the KEY!
TOPIC Hearing Health and Communication.
Join us for a discussion with Joyce Haynes, Hearing Care and Counsellor at Canadian Hearing Services. Hearing Loss .... What is the big deal? After all, doesn't it mean the only thing a person needs and can do is wear a hearing aid? Hearing affects communication which is the basis of all interaction. Hearing Health is something we tend to ignore and neglect, but it is important. Healthy hearing means healthy aging. If we focus on hearing loss, we will come up with a loss. If we focus on communication, we can make it happen. So, let's focus on communication!

Do you have topics you'd like discussed or questions you'd like answered at a future meeting?
