GLOUCESTER – Beauport Hearing Care of Magnolia is celebrating Better Hearing Month this May by collecting “Orphan Hearing Aids” that are no longer needed and donating them to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Judi Hodge Bergeron, board certified hearing specialist and owner at Beauport Hearing Care, said, “We are excited to join with community partners to collect ‘Orphan Hearing Aids’ all around Cape Ann. Donated hearing aids will bring the precious gift of hearing to people that cannot afford them.”
Beginning May 1st, look for the blue Orphan Hearing Aid collection boxes at the locations listed below. Donors that share their name and address on the donation envelope will receive a letter of thanks.
Hearing aid donations will help people locally and around the world. Beauport Hearing Care established a partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation a few years ago by providing free hearing aids to impacted survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing. More recently Beauport Hearing Care helped the Holy Family Mission obtain free hearing aids through a Starkey Hearing Foundation partner in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Click here to read more.
Starkey Hearing Foundation, in partnership with Beauport Hearing Care of Gloucester, Massachusetts, has given back the gift of hearing to 15 survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing. More than four years after the attack, Beauport Hearing Care learned of survivors with hearing loss from the explosion who had still not obtained treatment and approached Starkey Hearing Foundation to partner in helping these deserving people who could not otherwise afford hearing aids.

Beauport Hearing was recently featured in the International Hearing Society’s quarterly magazine, The Hearing Professional.
The article cites plenty of specifics concerning Beauport Hearing’s different approach. Hearing specialist and co-owner, Judi Hodge Bergeron said, “The most important difference is how we emphasize aural rehabilitation rather than hearing aids.” She continued, “Many patients tell us they tried hearing aids more than once before. But no one was ever able to deliver the kind of hearing success they obtained from our clinic.”
