“I Can Hear My Clients Clearly,” New Hearing Aids Help Michelle on the Job

November 15, 2023

Michelle works at a travel company on Vancouver Island. Her job involves talking a lot with customers over the phone.

A woman talks on her phone at her desk.However, Michelle has hearing loss which made it difficult to accurately hear her clients.

Her audiologist at Hear Inc recommended she apply to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for help funding a new pair of hearing aids. She applied and was quickly approved.

“They were hugely helpful in covering most of the cost of my new hearing aids,” she explains.

Michelle is already noticing the difference in her workday.

“It does make hearing my clients easier,” she says. “I can hear my clients clearly.”

Michelle says she would recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others in need.

“Thank you for your assistance and kindness. Much appreciated!”
