Are you an adult living with hearing loss in Calgary? If you could benefit from personalized support to learn how to better manage your hearing loss, this program is for you. For a period of 3 months, a mentor can assist you in accessing resources and learning strategies to help you manage your hearing loss. This might include an introduction to new assistive technology, encouraging you to attend speechreading classes or helping you re-engage with the people around you.
This program offers one-to-one mentoring with a trained volunteer who has lived experience. You meet weekly to discuss challenges, strategies and triumphs. These meetings can be in-person, by phone, or virtually on your computer. There is a meet-up group to stay connected after the 3 month program has ended, so that support is ongoing. We have a private Facebook Group you can join for the latest information and to keep in touch.
