Farhad works as a security guard at a shopping centre in the Lower Mainland. He has hearing loss.
“Cons of having hearing loss includes fewer job opportunities due to impaired communication, social withdrawal due to reduced access to services, and difficulties communicating with others,” he shares.
Referred by his hearing practitioner, he applied to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services. WorkBC Assistive Technology Services helped him purchase the new set of hearing aids he needed for work by covering most of the cost.
The hearing aids have made a big difference in Farhad’s workday, and he says he “absolutely” recommends WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others in need.
“No more miscommunication, tasks take a faster time to complete, and [I’m] able to hear better both in noisy and quiet situations,” he explains. “[It’s] essential for maintaining relationships and connections with co-workers.”
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.
