A Change in My Work

When WADHH lost its funding for the Senior Citizens Services program, I am now a Community Advocate and will continue working with seniors who are 55+ regardless.

I had the best 13 years of Daddy’s life before he passed away in 2002. As I told my Daddy, I vowed to help any Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deaf/Blind, and Hard of Hearing with vision loss with their hearing loss needs about anything that they may not understand.

I’m good about advocating to make sure the hearing people understand where and how people with hearing loss understand. I have repeatedly told many hearing professionals, family members, relatives…… how to talk to a person with hearing loss. They have a right to understand people and be understood.

Look at the next page of a handout you can share with your family members, friend, or professionals like doctors, nurses, hospitals. Communication is a 2-way street.

If you are a Senior 55+ and are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deaf/Blind, and Hard of Hearing with vision loss, please contact me. I’m happy to help! If you are home bound and lonely with no one to talk to, I’m here and feel free to contact me! I’ve been sending letters to my current Seniors with short stories, Deaf Jokes, WordSearch, and small simple craft to make. When COVID goes away, I will visit or call you! If you are interested, contact me!
