Hearing Implant Support
For some hearing impaired veterans a hearing aid may not be the only solution and possibly not a solution at all.
Some types of hearing loss such as a conductive hearing loss may respond much better to Spectacle Aids or Bone Anchored Hearing Aid.
The spectacle aid houses the hearing aids inside the arms of the spectacles and pass the sound via bone conduction directly into the clients cochlea, effectively bypassing the outer ear canal and the middle ear which may be where the problem of hearing loss is associated. If the ear suffers with constant infections then the specaids will allow the ear canal to be kept free of any ear pieces which could stop the infection clearing.
This is a great solution for a veteran who wears glasses and has this type of hearing issue. It can look extremely smart, solve a difficult medical issue, and allow the veteran to hear.
Help Us Fit More Veterans!
Since becoming a charity, we have managed to fit over 70 veterans with top-class hearing aids! However, we still have more than 2,000 veterans who need our help in getting back to a normal standard of life after the hearing damage they received in their years of service. Any donations we receive are a huge help in the lives of our vets and we are eternally grateful for whatever you may be able to spare.
Proudly supporting those who serve!
