Hearing Loss Presentation & Screening 


According to the Hearing Health Foundation, nearly 50 million Americans experience hearing loss between the ages of 65 to 74? And the number increases by 50% for people over the age of 75. Ellen Baker AuD of Decibel Hearing services will help you understand what hearing loss is, what causes it, and how it can affect people and their lives. She will also discuss what can be done to relieve it or manage it. Identifying and addressing hearing loss early brings many benefits, from enhancing your quality of life, to helping protect against several health consequences linked to unaddressed hearing loss. Ellen will also provide a hearing screening to individuals in attendance. Call 517-6261 to make a reservation for the presentation and screening.
