“Without this help, I never would have been able to get hearing aids.”

April 8, 2020

Working for a home care provider in Kelowna, Karen helps clients live in their own homes by coming over and helping them with tasks ranging from meal prep to dressing and bathing.

Karen was finding, however, that she needed help herself.

Karen in front of a WorkBC Assistive Technology Services sign“I am a middle aged woman in fair health with a hearing impairment,” she explains. “I cannot always hear what clients are saying.”

While visiting an independent living facility, she heard about WorkBC Assistive Technology Services during NexGen Hearing (new window)’s monthly visit.

She decided to check it out herself.

Through WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, she received a set of hearing aids.

“I can hear things much better now,” she exclaims.

Karen is grateful for the financial assistance she received through the program.

“I am so grateful that someone in my situation in life now has access to this kind of help,” she says. “Without this help, I never would have been able to get hearing aids.”

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
