Hearing Loss and the Holidays: A Pot Luck Luncheon Party and Rap Session

holiday party decorWhere: Cornerstone Village Function Room, 175 Harvey Street, Cambridge, MA

Gatherings with family and friends can be the heart and soul of the winter holidays.  Listening in large groups with multiple conversations can test our fortitude.  At this warm gathering with delicious food and supportive company, guests talked about  their “communication pet peeves” and best strategies for living well with hearing loss – and everyone took home a copy of the excellent communication strategies manual “Cut to the Chase” by Dusty Jessen, Au.D.!  We also tried out  our new portable hearing loop, which provided an excellent signal to those of us who are able to use t-coils on hearing aids and cochlear implants.
