Help for the Hard of Hearing

Dear Editor,

Logo for the Society of Deaf and Heard of Hearing Nova ScotiansDarryl Sittler, a Maple Leafs hockey legend, can be seen in a recent national campaign speaking on hearing loss. He notes hearing loss can lead to depression, cognitive decline and social isolation. These are serious yet preventable issues.

We, the Society of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Nova Scotians, are here to help. Roughly 25,000 Cape Bretoners have hearing loss. We offer American Sign Language/English Interpretation, Assistive Devices Loan and Sales Program, Hearing Aid Bank, Hearing Health Care Counselling and Accessibility Assessments.

Call 902-564-0003 to learn more.
