Hear Alberta exists to promote hearing health. We do that through education, advocacy and social enterprise. Hear Alberta informs and educates Albertans about their options for hearing loss management and promotes protection and maintenance of hearing through strategies to prevent hearing loss. We work in partnership with audiologists, the medical community and hearing aid practitioners to provide unbiased, neutral information to help combat the confusion and fear. We work to educate service providers, employers and organizations about the unique needs of those with a hearing loss and how to make accommodations so everyone’s communication needs are met.
Almost one in four Albertans has a hearing loss. A hearing loss can occur at any age, range from mild to severe, and can deteriorate gradually or sudddenly. A hearing loss can be caused by genetics, medication, trauma, illness, aging or excessive noise. All these variables is what makes everyone’s hearing loss unique.
That’s why Hear Alberta will help you navigate the range of options to find the hearing solution that is right for you.
