Jerry Aumont from Ottawa has been coming to ListenUP! Canada and Dr. Matyas, an Ear-Nose-Throat physician, for well over a decade. Jerry is a long-time hearing aid user, but as his hearing declined over time, his old hearing aids needed to be upgraded to a more powerful model.
Jerry received his hearing aids on behalf of the Campaign for Better Hearing’s Give-Back program. He has already noticed an improvement in the quality of his life and feels more confident than he ever was.
For anyone dealing with hearing loss and debating whether to get their hearing checked or not, Jerry says, “I would encourage them to try amplified hearing devices as a means to overcome the barriers to better hearing.” He suggests visiting a hearing professional as soon as possible without making a fuss about it.
