Holyoke Medical Center to Hold Hearing-aid Program
HOLYOKE — Holyoke Medical Center will present “What Everyone Should Know Before Buying a Hearing Aid” on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 4:30 p.m. in the Fran Como Conference Room of the main hospital.
The purchase of a hearing aid can significantly improve one’s life, but what should a potential user know before making the investment? Join HMC Speech and Hearing Manager Janice Walker as she talks about preparing for the purchase of a hearing aid. Many things should be considered before purchase, such as what type of situations pose hearing difficulty, how active one’s lifestyle is, and what technologies the individual already uses, such as a smartphone or tablet. Walker will also discuss the cost associated with the purchase of hearing aids and consumer laws, including 30-day trial periods, return policies, warranties, and insurance coverage.
Pre-registration for this program is suggested. For further information or to pre-register, call the Holyoke Medical Center Health Promotion Line at (413) 534-2789.
