Our next addition in our Weekly Spotlights! We want you to get to know our team and what goes on behind the scenes while we take care of your hearing needs:
Hi everyone, my name is Emily Brac and I am a part of London Audiology’s administrative team. I have worked here, off and on, (and let’s say for legal working-age purposes) since I was 14 years old. This clinic is like a second home to me, it helps that most of my actual family works here too.
Everyone always asks if I am also pursuing a career in audiology, and while I love my role here at the clinic, my career path has been Early Childhood Education. I currently have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Leadership and am now pursuing my Master’s degree as well.
In the meantime I am in charge of our social media and marketing campaigns. This means meeting with our hearing aid company representatives to learn about the different ways we can promote ourselves, increase our online presence, and connect with our community. I also research the latest news in hearing health and share it with all of you, and it’s my job to help you get better acquainted with our amazing team!
But, I think my most important job has been implementing our “Daily Dad Joke” policy in the break room.

Starkey shared a link with us to their online tinnitus test and we wanted to share it with you:
Tinnitus Management is one of the services we provide. We can help most patients experiencing tinnitus. Tinnitus is the sound of buzzing or ringing in the ears or head which other people do not hear. If you have ever been told that you must “learn to live with it” please contact us!
Tinnitus is experienced by 25% of the population. Only about 15% of them seek medical attention but for this group tinnitus can be debilitating. As 90% of tinnitus patients also have hearing loss, audiologists are in a unique position to provide treatment.
Amplification, masking, habituation, information counseling, relaxation techniques, altering diet, and targeted cognitive behaviour therapy are all tools we can use.
Call us at (519) 435-1899 or email us at contact@londonaudiology.com for more information.

Another day, another Zoom meeting. While we are grateful we still have a safe way of having multiple people get together for a conversation, becoming more and more reliant on technology can be frustrating!
The Canadian Academy of Audiology (May 2020), in an article written by Janine Verge, Dana Song, and Anne Griffin, shared some tips in making sure those virtual meetings are inclusive for those who have hearing loss.

Introducing our Weekly Spotlights! We want you to get to know our team and a little bit more about what goes on behind the scenes while we take care of your hearing needs.
Our first entry is from Mary:
Hi, my name is Mary DeMelo, just in case you didn’t recognize me under the mask. I am a Hearing Instrument Dispenser and have been part of the London Audiology team/family for over 35 years. Part of my job is cleaning hearing aids. When hearing aids come in for maintenance, we do a thorough cleaning and inspection. For the cleaning of hearing aids, we rely very heavily on The Mark V which is a vacuum for hearing aids. This machine allows us to suction out debris from receivers, microphones, battery compartments, volume controls, etc., that a brush would not be able to get at.
At this appointment we also change tubing, wires, wax guards, microphone covers to name a few things. Regular at-home and in-house maintenance is crucial in keeping your hearing aid working optimally and also may help reduce manufacturer repairs and increase the longevity of the hearing aid’s life.

We often get comments and questions about the old architecture of the two homes that make up our clinic, so we decided to do some digging up ourselves. We learned that both buildings have official cultural heritage status.
387 Burwell St, built c1900, is a Dutch Colonial. The Dutch Colonial is characterized by a gambrel roof which often, but doesn’t always, extend over a front porch. Generally constructed before 1918.
     
390 Colborne St, built in 1895, is a Queen Anne. That means it’s characterized as a decorative variant on a general Victorian architectural style. Often but not exclusively characterized by irregular outlines and silhouettes, frequently with gables, two-story bays, tall and decorated chimneys, and often including a variety of building materials.

Here are some facts and statistics that were shared with us from The National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Deafness and Other Communicative Disorders (NIDC), and the National Council on Aging (NCOA), and we would like to share them with you.
Facts like these aren’t meant to scare you, but rather to try to encourage you to be more mindful of the role hearing health plays in our overall health. By understanding how our hearing impacts our bodies, and vice versa, we can work towards improving our overall quality of life!

Just a fun throwback to January 2020, which we have realized was the last time our whole clinic was able to get together in one group! Here we are at BATL – Backyard Axe Throwing League, here in London, Ontario.
Nothing says team building like hurling axes at targets and dueling it out to be crowned the ultimate champion. And in the end it was Matt who was brave enough to face off against the boss and beat her for the trophy and bragging rights.

Even with normal hearing I find myself constantly asking people to repeat themselves when out in public. You can imagine how difficult communication can be for someone who has hearing loss.
The Hearing Journal posted some tips on how to improve communication for anyone in a variety of settings. Have you come up with any other tips that are not listed here?

Hey everyone! The London Free Press is having their ‘Best of London 2021’ contest and we would be honoured if you could spare a minute to vote for us. Go to
The businesses are broken down by categories, so you will need to scroll down to ‘Professional Services’ and ‘Best Hearing Centre’ to give us a shout out. If I have some time today I might just go through and give my favourite restaurants some love too!
Thanks in advance, we are proud to have been helping Londoners with their hearing needs for the past 36 years ❤
