It has been said, “Silence is Golden”. However, spoken so profoundly in a poem by Roy Bain (1996), “He who said “silence is golden” spoke for himself only; for the hearing impaired, “silence is lonely”.
For 35+ years I have served the hearing impaired community and have seen the effects hearing loss can have on an individual, as well as those around them. The reward of seeing the barrier of loneliness fade as families are reconnected to loved ones with the assistance of hearing devices is priceless. As I engage with my patients on a daily basis, I do not consider my profession a job; I count it a privilege to make their quality of life the best it can be! In 2015, I attended classes and achieved certification as an Occupational Hearing Conservationist. I educate patients on how to prevent hearing loss; such as, the effects of noise on hearing and the purpose of hearing protection, as well as performing industrial screenings.
