Hearing and Aging

Many Canadian Seniors have difficulty hearing another person talking. The number increases to almost 1 in 2 for those 85 and over.1 Hearing loss can make it harder for you to participate fully in everyday activity.

Canadian Hearing Society

A counsellor from the Canadian Hearing Society2 can provide home visits, education, demonstrations and recommendations of communication devices. And help you to:

  • Stay safe and independent at home
  • Improve communication with family and friends
  • Stay involved in your favourite activities

It is important to get your hearing checked if you notice a change in your hearing. For more information about hearing programs and services, please visit the Canadian Hearing Society (www.chs.ca).
