We will discuss dealing with the holidays with a hearing loss. We had expected to have a formal speaker for this month, but since life happens, we’ve tried with three different speakers who declined, and multiple board members have been tied up with other activities of life. Instead, we will host a program when we get to share our own solutions for what is surely a timely topic. We will host what is referred to as a Rap Session. Our moderator will ask for the members’ feedback on a variety of settings, and the group can discuss how they have dealt with similar scenarios, and we can share what has worked, and what has not worked for us. These meetings are always lively, and we learn a lot from each other so please join us to participate or just listen to solutions for holidays with a hearing loss.
December will be the program that has been often requested as a repeat from a couple of years ago, discussing T-coil versus Bluetooth. The speakers will be one audiologist (our advisor, Carol Clifford) and a super user (our president, Mary Clark). The presentation will be an updated version of what was presented in 2017 so join us for the latest and greatest!
