Cel­e­brat­ing 30 Years of Hear­ing Health Ser­vice to the Hamilton Com­mu­nity

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Hear­ing In­stru­ment Spe­cial­ist Jill Nel­son and Hear­ing In­stru­ment Dis­penser Eve­lyn Lawrence are cel­e­brat­ing 30 years of ser­vice to the Hamilton com­mu­nity and are very ex­cited to reach this sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone. For the past three decades, th­ese two ex­pe­ri­enced clin­i­cians have helped Hamilton res­i­dents im­prove their qual­ity of life. At Lis­tenUP! Canada, lo­cated at 25 Charl­ton Ave. E. in the med­i­cal clinic across from St. Joseph’s Health­care, this power duo pro­vide hear­ing so­lu­tions de­signed to suit in­di­vid­ual needs for the hear­ing im­paired pub­lic.

“I think what has given us an edge and stay­ing power in this field is that we have man­aged to in­still trust and are re­spect­ful of the spe­cific and unique chal­lenges of our clients. Our col­lec­tive years in the in­dus­try has en­abled us to ex­tend all facets of our ex­pe­ri­ence to those with hear­ing needs,” says Nel­son.

“It’s been a re­ally good fit, both in terms of work­ing to­gether and bal­anc­ing our work with our fam­ily lives,” says Lawrence. “Over the years, our fam­i­lies grew and many cus­tomers got to know our four chil­dren who have worked sum­mers at the of­fice. We are for­tu­nate and proud to be in a po­si­tion where we can pro­vide a pro­fes­sional, warm and com­fort­able at­mos­phere for our clien­tele and for our­selves.”

Nel­son and Lawrence per­form com­pre­hen­sive hear­ing as­sess­ments at no charge for peo­ple who have of­ten felt iso­lated from fam­ily and friends or for those who are frus­trated by so­cial events and strug­gle to par­tic­i­pate in con­ver­sa­tions. If hear­ing loss is de­tected, in­di­vid­u­als are pre­sented with rec­om­men­da­tions based upon their spe­cific needs. If it is sus­pected that hear­ing loss is due to a med­i­cal prob­lem, the client is re­ferred back to his or her fam­ily physi­cian. How­ever, a great num­ber of hear­ing losses are a re­sult of noise-in­duced hear­ing loss or are sim­ply the re­sult of what is re­ferred to as pres­by­cu­sis – hear­ing loss due to ag­ing.

“We rec­om­mend that peo­ple 60 years of age and older have their hear­ing tested reg­u­larly and stress that pa­tients presently wear­ing hear­ing de­vices be reeval­u­ated every two years,” says Nel­son. “We en­cour­age peo­ple to book ap­point­ments over the phone or via email, and we are usu­ally able to ac­com­mo­date pa­tients at short no­tice – whether it be a com­pre­hen­sive hear­ing as­sess­ment, pre­scrip­tions, or ser­vice and coun­selling.”

At Lis­tenUP! Canada, Nel­son and Lawrence are proud to of­fer a cur­rent gen­er­a­tion of hear­ing aids that solve the most com­mon chal­lenge for hear­ing aid wear­ers: hear­ing well in noisy en­vi­ron­ments. With the big­gest ad­vance­ment in hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy in 30 years, th­ese new hear­ing aids col­lect and dig­i­tally process nat­u­ral, 360 de­gree sound thou­sands of times per sec­ond! Ad­di­tional ser­vices th­ese two ex­perts pro­vide in­clude cus­tom fit­tings, fab­ri­ca­tion of ear-molds and ad­just­ments and re­pairs, even on de­vices pur­chased else­where. Clients who qual­ify for fund­ing from Work­place Safety and In­sur­ance Board (WSIB), Vet­er­ans Af­fairs (DVA), or other forms of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance are also wel­come.

In cel­e­bra­tion of their 30-year an­niver­sary, Nel­son and Lawrence in­vite you to book a free hear­ing as­sess­ment with them and take ad­van­tage of our spe­cial an­niver­sary pro­mo­tion on hear­ing aids.
