Hasan previously had to communicate with his daughter through text messages.
Working behind the scenes with his family, we got him to come in to see us for a free hearing check. This time, we were waiting with a different kind of message from his daughter...
"It was amazing to hear my daughter's voice in my headphones...
I had no idea my hearing affected her and my family so much. My audiologist told me lots of people think that way. I didn't realise how much I was missing out on, until I got my hearing aids on. My world has changed drastically. I can hear the birds, I can hear my family, I can hear my friends. We had a couple of parties and family gatherings, and it was amazing. Because I could hear everything. I was in control of my life again. I was a part of everything.
Now I'm back in my daughter's life again. And she's back in mine. No more text messages... now we can really talk. I had really missed that!"
We want to help people understand that their hearing difficulties can also affect their loved ones too.
