“I Am So Much Less Frustrated,” New Hearing Aids Make a Big Difference in Karen’s Workday

A woman writes on a piece of paper.

Karen works as an intake coordinator for a residential drug and alcohol treatment centre.

“I have hearing loss and was having a hard time hearing on the telephone and in busy environments with background noise,” she shares.

A friend suggested she check out WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for help funding a new pair of hearing aids. WorkBC Assistive Technology Services staff walked her through the application process, and in no time, she was approved.

“Almost all costs were covered for my hearing aids,” she says.

The hearing aids have already made a big difference in Karen’s workday.

“I am so much less frustrated and [I’m] happier at work,” she explains. “I can hear everything on the phone now and I no longer need co-workers and clients to repeat themselves.”

Karen says she “absolutely” recommends WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, praising the “patient and kind” service she received.

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
