 Our Holiday Brunch at the Dan'l Webster Inn was a lot of fun.  We had a big, quiet room to ourselves.  It was a great way to kick off the holiday season.   We all know that some holiday events can be stressful when you have a hearing loss. 

 

HLAA Boston offers to all of you a "tool kit" of holiday resources posted on its website, along with best wishes for a wonderful new year.  Feel free to share with your friends, loved ones and hearing loss patients!

 

The very helpful talk by Dr. Sam Trychin is called SURVIVING AND THRIVING DURING THE HOLIDAYS. Take time to read it now!  And thanks for sharing the information, HLAA Boston!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!


 

Picture of Beethoven in middle age. Beethoven continued to compose as his hearing worsened.

"I am compelled to live as an exile.  If I approach near to people, a feeling of hot anxiety comes over me lest my condition should be noticed."

                

(Ludwig van Beethoven, 1802 letter to his brothers, from Mayo Clinic's On   Better Hearing and Balance, page 13.)

 

 

Are you still trying to fake it?  Find yourself "head bobbing?"

Come to our meetings and find out why hearing loss is NOT a disability--it's a communication problem!

 

We are one of 6 New England chapters of the Hearing Loss Association of America.

Hearing Loss Association Cape Cod serves people with hearing loss, their friends and families, in Southeastern Massachusetts including Cape Cod and the Islands.  All meetings are free and open to the public. 

 

Our group is run by volunteers and we invite you to join us.  Membership is only $10 a year.  There are many activities you can help with--from baking for the coffee table to advocating for accessibility at your neighborhood theater and everything in between.

 

There are three ways we make our meetings accessible to people with hearing loss.

  • Our meetings are transcribed with CART, computer assisted real time transmission.  You can READ what people are saying on a screen. 
  • Also, the meeting room has an induction loop in the ceiling which works invisibly with the telecoil in your hearing aid to bring the sound directly to your ears.
  • If you do not have a hearing aid, you can use our receivers and headphones to amplify the sound from the microphones. 

 

You don't have to strain to hear every word!

We appreciate the support of our sponsors.  We are a nonprofit and do not give endorsements.  We encourage your exploration of options.
