It’s been a busy season here are Sound idEARS, with lots of changes and events these past few months. This is what we’ve been up to:
New website and Facebook launch:
We’ve overhauled and redesigned our website, to a clean and crisp style that is now also mobile-friendly, for easier navigation through all our resources even when you’re on the go. We’ve also joined the world of Facebook, where we post weekly articles, blogs and factoids from the web, regarding hearing loss, tinnitus, CAPD, and more! Visit our page and keep up to date with us.
Conferences, Community events, and Conventions, oh my!
Being a part of the community is an important part of what we do. We took part in the Richmond Chinese Community Society’s Senior Health Fair on July 23rd, with a presentation and info booth on hearing loss and hearing aids, we spoke to hundreds of people about age-related hearing loss. We also participated in the New Westminster Senior Festival, on Saturday, October 1st with a presentation on tinnitus.
As part of our commitment to our clients, we are constantly researching, learning, and staying up to date with the advancements in audiology, and particularly in the field of CAPD. We attended the World Conference of Audiology and American Speech-Language and Hearing Association convention, where audiologists from around the world gathered to share their knowledge with each other.
Change in office hours
With everything happening all at once, we’ve had to make a few concessions, and one of those was to close the office on Saturdays. It was a difficult decision, having established Saturdays as part of our schedule for over a decade. We’ve condensed clinic hours to Monday- Friday 9AM-5PM so that we are able to take the necessary time to lay the foundation for our plans in the future. We’ve come a long way in 20 years, and there’s still so much more to go.
Coming up we’ll be having our bi-annual battery sale, from March 1st – 14th, you can stock up on hearing aid batteries; buy 2 packs and get 1 pack free! We get our batteries direct from the manufacturer, so you don’t have to worry about batteries expiring before you use them up.
