Among dying hospice patients, hearing problems are often overlooked. Families and caregivers often mistake hearing loss for dementia among the elderly and terminally ill. To help those who need amplification as part of end of life care we initiated a loaner program for this population. We have hearing aids and personal sound amplifiers with headsets available for short term loans. If you know someone who may benefit from this program, please let us know. We will do home/hospital visits upon request.
