Senior Hearing Health Program

Hearing loss is more prevalent than ever before in our society, and it often affects the health, wellness, and quality of life of older adults. Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss, occurs gradually over time and occurs in 1 out of 3 individuals between the ages 64 – 75, making it one of the most common conditions older adults experience.

Our Senior Hearing Health Program focuses on how hearing loss impacts communication and interactions with others and offers next step guidelines for identification and treatment options. Hearing health seminars and hearing screenings may be scheduled on a fee-for-service basis at your location.
