Michael is the founder and general manager of a construction company in Kelowna. He had an anoxic brain injury which caused severe hearing loss, and is just returning to work.
He needed hearing aids and his audiologist referred him to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for funding. Michael applied and was quickly approved.
“The help to get my hearing aids funded has been a life saver. I did not have the money for hearing aids and I need them,” he shares. “I am just starting to ease my way back to work.
“It is going to be a slow, long process but without these hearing aids I wouldn’t even stand a chance at getting back to work. I am starting to get used to hearing aids and just focusing on my rehab and getting back to work without trying to over stimulate or overwhelm myself.”
Michael says he “most definitely would” recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services.
“They have been amazing to work with,” he says. “Assistive Technology Services has helped me tremendously in my quality of life and my ability to start taking part in my business again since my accident. [. . .] I am beyond grateful.
“I just want to thank you again for helping me with the funding for my hearing aids. I appreciate everything your [organization] does.”
