When left untreated, hearing loss reduces earning power, disrupts relationships and causes a wide array of psychological problems.

It can also be an issue for children and young adults. Hearing loss negatively affects academic performance and language development needed for classroom learning and vocational achievement.

Treating a hearing loss, however, can often seem difficult for those on a limited income.

Someone with hearing loss doesn’t have to stand for the status quo – modern hearing aids are an effective solution to these problems.

What is "Hearing You Better"?

It is an alliance between the Guelph Lions Club, and multiple hearing care partners for accessible hearing care – assisting income-qualified people with hearing loss in Guelph to access quality hearing aids and related care.

How does "Hearing You Better" work?

Income requirements are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but recipients must be low-income.

The "Hearing You Better" program is a provider of last resort. All other options for service must be used before assistance can be approved.

Where does one apply?

To qualify, Guelph residents with hearing loss must complete an application through a health committee, provide proof of identification, and be financially eligible to receive assistance.

Who can apply?

Candidates who do not have a suitable working hearing aid and are financially unable to purchase a hearing aid may apply.

Why are we approaching you?

To help meet the need within the City of Guelph as a "last resort" funding avenue for those who do not otherwise meet the qualifying parameters of available hardship funds, the "Hearing You Better" needs YOUR help. Whether making a monetary contribution to the trust fund or by donating gently used hearing aids and/or assistive technology equipment, YOU will be helping make a difference.

When?

NOW! The "Hearing You Better" needs YOUR help now! Tax receipts will be written for all donations of $20.00 or greater.
