Nancy More Confident at Work Thanks to New Hearing Aids

Nancy works in accounting, and found she was having difficulties communicating at work due to hearing loss.

“I have problems hearing clearly what people say, which in turn affected my communication, as I can hear things wrong. It is critical that I get the correct information, especially as I am dealing with numbers and deadlines,” she shares, noting that she didn’t feel as involved in team meetings.

Her audiologist at the Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility referred her to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for funding. Nancy applied and was quickly approved.

“It helped me financially as a pair of hearing aids are very expensive. I cannot afford it if I have to pay for the full amount myself,” she says, noting that she found the application process “very convenient and time efficient.”

She has noticed a big difference at work, and says she “definitely” recommends WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others.

“I am more confident and not worrying about missing something or getting something wrong,” she explains. “[I’m] more willing to participate in conversations at work.”

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.
