Marcie Finds “Greater Confidence, Higher Productivity” with New Hearing Aids

Marcie is a senior working full time in telephone sales. She works hard to sell appliance parts to both retail and wholesale markets, and follows up on requests for replacement parts.

“Hearing loss has limited my ability to interact with both customers and co-workers. It became necessary for me to ask people to repeat themselves several times in order to understand [them],” she explains. “Many times I would be unaware that I was being spoken to, especially if the person was behind me. It is easy to misunderstand instructions when you do not hear clearly.”

Robert is a self-employed civil engineer, contracted to undertake project work by local governments. He works from his home office in Courtenay, but also travels to various work sites and client offices.

He has adult onset limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, and has been using a power wheelchair full time for over five years.

With the travel that his work requires, Robert needs a wheelchair accessible van — a big expense.
