Edgardo works at a care home in Vancouver, ensuring the care of the seniors living there.
“With my hearing loss, I find it difficult to interact with my co-workers and residents. Especially the residents mostly in soft-spoken voices,” he explains.
His audiologist referred him to the WorkBC Assistive Technology Services program.
Through WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, he received funding for a new hearing aid.
“It is easy now for me to hear the residents and my co-workers. I feel the difference while I’m using the hearing aid,” he says.
In particular, Edgardo appreciates that he doesn’t have to ask the residents or his co-workers to repeat themselves anymore.
“I feel confident that I can now give a higher quality of care,” he shares.
Edgardo recommends the WorkBC Assistive Technology Services program to others in need.
“I highly recommend [it],” he says. “I am so thankful for the help you have given me.”
