Our hearing health is closely connected to our brain’s health. Since hearing loss becomes so prevalent as we age, we feel that the links between hearing loss and depression, mental fatigue, reduced cognitive capacity, even dementia highlighted in recent studies are a big deal. Read the Research
Early detection may not prevent hearing loss, but it could help reduce some of its effects. We believe that together, we can make a difference.
GREAT NEWS! We surpassed our goal of 50,000 hearing tests across Canada in 2015 and as a result our sponsors have donated over $104,000 for use in providing hearing aids to members of our communities who otherwise would not have had access. We’re so happy for our hearing aid recipients, and so grateful to everyone who contributed to achieving this exciting milestone. Since our ultimate goal is to help EVERY Canadian over 60 get a hearing test, we’re more than doubling our goal for 2016. Our target is to raise $250,000 in hearing-test-driven donations from our corporate sponsors, and deliver free hearing aids to twice the number of recipients. All we need from you is to get your hearing tested. And then get your friends to test theirs too. So please, request a test today! Pass the test, and pass it on.
For too many Canadians it was in grade school. Hearing loss can be so gradual that others may notice a problem before you do.
Our goal is to help ALL Canadians over the age of 60 get a FREE baseline hearing test and begin annually monitoring their hearing health.
This includes YOU!
You can join the Campaign by taking 2 easy steps:
1. Request an appointment to get your hearing tested.
2. Encourage your friends to get theirs tested too.
More than 175 hearing healthcare centres across Canada are supporting the cause. We hope you’ll join too!
