Lynda works at a nursing home in Kelowna in recreation, with her duties including involving residents in activities like exercises, bus tours, and church services.

Lynda has hearing loss.

“I did not hear low speaking residents or co-workers when they spoke to me,” she explains.

Her audiologists at NexGen Hearing referred her to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for funding for new hearing aids. She applied and was quickly approved.

Through WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, Lynda received a new set of chargeable hearing aids. They have made a big difference in her workday.

“[I] can now hear everything that is said to me,” she shares. “Now that I can hear, I do not have to have everyone to repeat themselves.

“I would recommend this program to everyone,” Lynda says. “This is a wonderful program [. . .] I really appreciate having these hearing aides.”

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.
