Simon works as a visitor centre agent in Pemberton. His job requires him to speak with tourists both in-person and over the phone, a task made more difficult by his hearing loss.
He had learned about WorkBC Assistive Technology Services from a colleague at work, as well as his hearing aid provider, and decided to apply for funding for the hearing aids he needed for work.
Simon was quickly approved and received funding for a significant portion of the cost of the new hearing aids.
The hearing aids have already made a big difference in Simon’s workday.
“[It’s] much easier to do my job,” he shares. “I also feel much more confident and at ease with our guests and my colleagues.”
Simon recommends WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others in need, commending the quick service he received.
“Very quick and efficient service. All completed within a few weeks of first application.”
