You might be aware from our social media posts that August is an exciting period for the team…it’s Hearing Health Awareness Month!
This is a time to spread the word about why it’s important to treat hearing loss early. And today, this is more crucial than ever.
Face masks have stopped people being able to lip-read, revealing a possible hearing loss for many.
The team will be working hard throughout the month to make it easier for those with new concerns to get help. But to make it a truly successful event, they’d love your support!
Could You Be a Hero For Hearing Loss?
If you’ve experienced hearing loss, you’ll be aware of the classic symptoms – like turning the TV up louder or having trouble when there’s background noise.
Unfortunately, some people wait years before addressing these problems. But you can make all the difference by simply asking someone if they’d go for a hearing assessment.
For those wanting to make even more of an impact, the Aim Hearing and Audiology Services team is looking for patients who can share their hearing loss stories with the world.
These accounts of how you received life-changing treatment will be posted on our website and could inspire thousands in the future to get the help they need.
Everyone appreciates your input and support.
Updates From The Office
Aim Hearing and Audiology Services has started a collaboration with UNC Chapel Hill, allowing the team to treat more people with cochlear implants.
People from the local community and surrounding areas are taking advantage of this amazing service. If you know someone in need, help is available!
Everyone continues to put your safety first at the clinic, with strict sanitation protocols in place before and after every patient’s visit.
And for those who would prefer to receive support at home, our Tele Audiology platform remains a great option – especially when paired with a “remote assist” feature.
In other news, August is a special time for our team members Allie and Chelsea.
Both will celebrate birthdays this month, and in even better news, Allie recently became a full-time patient care coordinator with us. It’s great to have them on board.
Throughout the pandemic, people have found their pets a source of affection and comfort. For us, this has been no different.
Both of them have just started back with their trainer, so they’ll be ready to offer plenty of cuddles and warmth to every visitor.
The past month was a very special one for Molly as on July 6, she turned two years old!
