Graham had a problem with his hearing for many years, and his family felt it was high time he did something about it. We got together and worked out a way to get him in to see us. When Graham came in for his free hearing test, we were waiting with a surprise message from his son Sam…
“To be honest I didn’t quite know what to think when I heard Sam coming through the headphones. He’s a bit of a joker and I thought he was having me on. But you know, when I listened to what he had to say, the message was pretty clear - for everybody’s sake I needed to get my hearing sorted. And to be honest, with the help of my audiologist, it was a lot easier than I expected. The first thing I noticed was that my favourite chair creaked when I sat down, and there seemed to be ticking clocks everywhere I went. Now I can hear every little word Sam has to say – whether he wants me to or not.”
We want to help people understand that their hearing difficulties can also impact their loved ones.
