New Hearing Aids Make Communication at Work Much Easier for Rommel

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services participant Rommel.

Rommel works in shipping and receiving for a hotel. He has hearing loss, which has made his job quite difficult.

“I could barely hear anything, and I couldn’t even lip read anymore due to people wearing masks. It was very challenging. I had to ask someone to intervene most times,” he shares.

His audiologist referred him to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services. Rommel applied, and was approved for funding for a high quality set of hearing aids.

The new hearing aids have made a big difference on the job.

“Communication is a huge important factor in my work,” he says. “I was able to hear better and understand what people are saying and I able to communicate now compared to before when I was really struggling to figure out what people were saying.

“I was able to deliver better service and communicate well within the company departments — both internal and external customers.”

Rommel says he would “gladly” recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others in need.

“I am very thankful for the help and service provided to me.”

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.
