Straight Talk about hearing loss and hearing aids
Getting older is the leading cause of hearing loss with up to 70% of people over 70 affected. Why do some people hear well with hearing aids while others don’t? Why don’t some people like their hearing aids and find them difficult to use? What’s the difference between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist?
These are just some of the questions that Lori Fish, Au.D., the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin’s Doctor of Audiology will address on Friday, March 16 from 9:30-11 a.m. at the United Way office located at 705 S. 24th Ave., Suite 400B in Wausau. She will also talk about tips and strategies to maximize communication in your home and in public places. The presentation will include the latest research on hearing aids and the brain.
This program is free and open to the public and is part of the United Way RSVP Retirement Well-Being series. Call United Way RSVP at 715-298-5721 to register for this event.
