HEARING LOSS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA LEXINGTON MEETING
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Lexington Hearing & Speech Center, 350 Henry Clay Boulevard, Lexington, Kentucky 40502-1024
John Perry will present on Financing Options for Hearing Aids and other things an informed consumer needs to know. He will review current hearing aid technology, one feature is certain, be sure to ask the hearing professional to include a telecoil in your hearing aid. Also a review on the channels through which hearing aids are distributed, what you need to know as an informed consumer. Finally and very important, he will explore the options available to us to help finance this expense.
John was the 2009-2011 president of Hearing Loss Association of America Kentuckiana Chapter and is currently their treasurer. He first found out about his hearing loss at age 23 when he enlisted in the Kentucky Air National Guard. He would say that most of his hearing loss was caused by rock 'n roll, fireworks, cap pistols, model airplane engines and woodworking machinery. His hearing, along with his eyesight, was recorded as a “2” in his official physical profile. Fortunately, his having a “2” for his hearing profile did not keep him from his chosen field of weather. Jump forward twenty years plus and John’s hearing was getting so bad that he had to do something. He found the national Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) when it was still named Self Help for the Hard of Hearing (SHHH) and subscribed to the journal. It took him another two years before he was ready to go and see first a dispenser, second another dispenser and finally an audiologist. He bought his hearing aids from the audiologist. His only regret is that he had not accepted his hearing loss sooner and had done something about it. He continued to struggle with the challenges of his hearing loss. Though things have gotten better, John says he is still a work in progress.
The meeting is realtime captioned by Sworn Testimony, PLLC and is free and open to the public.
