“I Can Hear So Much Better,” New Hearing Aids Helps Rita Hear Customers

A customer pays with their credit card as a cashier watches at a grocery till.

Rita works as a cashier in Kelowna, and she has hearing loss making it hard to interact with customers.

When she was looking for hearing aids, she was referred to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for financial assistance for the hearing aids she needed for work. Rita applied to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services and was quickly approved, and was able to get the much-needed hearing aids.

The new hearing aids have made Rita’s job much easier.

I can hear so much better,” she says. “It helps very much to have hearing aids for contact and connecting constantly with customers.

“Now I can help customers and hear what they are asking me.”

When asked if she would recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others in need, she noted that she’d already recommended it to people she knows.

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.
