Free Hearing Screenings @ Rockport Senior Center
May 8 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Free hearing screenings are available at the Rockport Senior Center on Monday, May 8 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m.  We recommend you call for an appointment ahead of time.

Screening by a Licensed Hearing Care Provider

A free hearing screening by a licensed hearing health care professional is important. Not all hearing loss is the same.  Sometimes medical attention is advised.  But only licensed hearing care professionals are trained to assess the type and degree of hearing loss. Finally, if your hearing screening indicates you need a full hearing evaluation, the hearing specialist will let you know.

A Full Hearing Evaluation Is Important

Untreated hearing loss impacts your ability to live independently.  And good hearing health is important to your general health.  A full hearing evaluation lets you know where you stand.

A hearing evaluation is very informative.  Hearing loss is associated with increased injuries from falls.  It is also connected with early dementia, diabetes, and even heart disease.  But there is good news too.  Hearing care improves brain health and provides other health benefits.  Moreover, improving hearing helps you be aware of other people and obstacles around you. This helps you avoid falls.  These are all important considerations to independent living.  They are all reasons to get a hearing evaluation.

A full hearing evaluation lets you know if hearing aids may be helpful.  Also, your specialist will recommend a medical evaluation when one is necessary.

Hearing aids improve health and independence.  But getting hearing aids can also be very confusing.  There are so many choices, and price is not the only thing to consider.  Moreover, hearing aids are also very different from eye glasses.  Delivery of prescription eye glasses is usually the last step.  But obtaining new hearing aids is actually the first step in hearing care treatment.  Finally, a hearing screening provides basic information to help people make informed choices.

Your Hearing Matters @ Rose Baker Senior Center
May 22 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Your hearing matters!  Did you know that how well you hear (or DON’T hear) greatly impacts your health and ability to live independently? Treatments of hearing loss and tinnitus (e.g., ringing in the ear) are very effective.  This presentation answers questions people have about hearing, tinnitus, hearing aids and other treatment options.

  • Do you ever wonder why some people are happy with hearing aids and other people say they do not work?
  • Do you or someone you know have bothersome ringing in the ear (tinnitus)?
  • Ever wonder if hearing aids are the only answer? 
  • Are you eligible for FREE hearing aids?

Come to Your Hearing Matters at the Rose Baker Senior Center on Monday, May 22, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.  Learn answers to such questions.  Speakers are David and Judi Bergeron of Beauport Hearing Care in Magnolia, Massachusetts.  They are a hearing care professional couple, but they also personally live successfully with their own hearing loss and tinnitus.  An overview of the science of hearing will include personal anecdotes of how an active couple lives well with hearing loss.  It’s not all about hearing aids!

Your Hearing Matters is about Independent Living the Way You Want

Are you interested in living independently?  Untreated hearing loss impacts your ability to live independently.  Your Hearing Matters reveals how important good hearing health is to your general health.  Research has found that hearing loss is associated with increased injuries from falls, early dementia, diabetes, and even heart disease.  But there is good news too.  Hearing care improves brain health and other health factors.  These are all important considerations to independent living.

Hearing aids are shown to improve health and independence.  But getting hearing aids can also be very confusing.  There are so many choices, and price is not the only thing to consider.  Moreover, hearing aids are also very different from eye glasses.  Delivery of prescription eye glasses is usually the last step.  But obtaining new hearing aids is actually the first step in hearing care treatment.  Finally, Hearing Matters provides basic information to help people get the hearing care they need.

CALLING ALL VETS! Your Hearing Stories @ Cape Ann Veterans Services
Jun 9 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Many local veterans have come to Beauport Hearing Care seeking professional help with their hearing needs.  Hearing loss and tinnitus are the two top claims at the VA for vets of all ages.   We learned that many of our local veterans have questions about their hearing and hearing aids.  So, we provided hearing aid services and coaching to veterans at no cost.  The veterans have been so happy for this help.  They want to tell officials about it.  Therefore, we are calling all vets to a meeting with public officials to tell their stories about this important issue.

Our veterans need local technical support for their hearing health care.  Fortunately, a new law now allows the Veterans Administration (VA) to make this needed help available.   Hence, we are honored to sponsor an event for veterans to express their need and tell their own stories.  Furthermore, vets want the VA to move forward quickly to make local Hearing Instrument Specialist services available to them.

CALLING ALL VETS: Come speak about how important local hearing health care services are to you! Some political leaders like Mayor Sefatia Romeo-Thekan, Congressman Seth Moulton, State Senator Bruce Tarr, and State Representative Jerry Parisella have already replied and will be in attendance to hear you.

Fit to Serve

Fit to Serve was passed by Congress and signed into law in December 2016. This new law authorizes the Veterans Administration (VA) to pay practices like Beauport Hearing Care to provide hearing aid services to veterans in their local communities.  But the VA must first decide how the law will be implemented. And this is where the voice of veterans is most important!

Tell Your Hearing Stories

Officials want to hear the real life stories of veterans like you. How did local providers like Beauport Hearing Care help you?  Moreover, all veterans should get the kind of services that Beauport Hearing Care has provided at no cost to veterans.  Finally, your stories demonstrate how this law should help local veterans.
