Listening for life
September 09, 2016

THE STORY:

Imagine a world in which simple conversations can be hard work.  Where an hour or so in a noisy restaurant can leave you feeling exhausted.  This is the reality for many people with hearing loss.  They can often "cope" with conversational speech, but it comes at a great cost.  They are working so hard that the pleasure of listening disappears.  Similarly, for many people with hearing loss music loses much of its allure.  It no longer sounds as they remember and they are frustrated by this new reality.

The Hearing Rehabilitation Foundation (HRF) was set up 20 years ago to help people with hearing loss better understand speech through listening.  We provide 1:1 training to a wide range of people to help them develop their listening skills to the maximum.  It is time consuming, but we keep costs at an absolute minimum by not having any paid staff members.  The HRF is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to improving listening for all.

Our clients include teenagers through to older people in their 80's.  They are all different, of course, but they share one thing in common -- speech understanding is not straight forward and easy; it's hard work.  Over the years, we have also devoted a great deal of effort to improving music listening for adults with hearing loss, especially those who use cochlear implants.  Introductory music focus groups and concerts have helped many cochlear implant users back on the path to music enjoyment.

We have done a great deal, but we need to do much, much more.  Please contribute to help us provide more extensive services to people with hearing loss.  Help us to help them return to listening pleasure.  Thank you.
