“No More Worries,” New Hearing Aids Help Belle Communicate at Work

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services participant Belle.

Belle works in healthcare. She has hearing loss in both ears, which can make her job difficult.

“I have a lot of interaction with co-workers, visitors and residents, and the surroundings are kind of loud,” she says. “I barely hear what people are telling me, I always asked them to repeat what they said, or sometimes pretend that I heard them.”

Her audiologist at Connect Hearing referred her to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for help funding a new set of hearing aids.

“Assistive Technology Services helped me to acquire hearing aids for both my ears,” she explains. “They did a good job with all the assistance I needed, and it didn’t take that long to acquire the device that I needed.”

The new hearing aids have made a big difference in Belle’s workday.

“It helps a lot,” she shares. “I can clearly hear conversations and do not need to ask [people] to repeat again. Way better to communicate with everybody.

“I am very confident with the work that I do. No more worries.”

When asked if she recommends WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others, she says, “Yes, definitely. I will recommend the Assistive Technology Services program to friends or anyone who will need assistance. They did a very good job. KUDOS to everyone, I am very much thankful for their assistance.”

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.
