Time for an Anniversary Celebration!
Next month Elkhart Audiology Rehab will be celebrating our 8th anniversary. I’m so thankful for the opportunities I’ve had to connect with you over the years, which is why we’re celebrating this anniversary all month long! When you visit our office in August, you’ll find free ice cream available in addition to the usual cookies and coffee. It’s our little way of saying thank you for trusting us with something as important as your hearing health.
Meet The Latest Addition to Our Team.
Stefanie is here to help schedule appointments, clean your hearing aids, and answer general questions about your hearing aids. Stefanie graduated from IPFW in 2012 with a degree in Communications Sciences and Disorders. Here’s a brief interview to help you get to know our new team member a little better.
I have had a love for speech and hearing for the past 10 years. I earned my bachelor’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2012. This degree allowed me to go to either the Speech Pathology or Audiology route in the future. I have taken a few full and part-time jobs, but have never felt fulfilled in them. Coming to Elkhart Audiology has relit the fire within me! Once again, I have found my passion. I enjoy coming to work, learning new things, and meeting all of our wonderful clients!

If You’re Struggling to Hear, It’s Time to Reclaim Your Independence
Better Hearing is all about HAVING Your Independence! The latest hearing aid models are filled with advantages that will get you back on your feet and enjoying everyday conversations and sounds you’ve been missing. Here are a few feature highlights from Phonak.

When activities keep going, you can too. Modern chargers can keep your hearing aids operational for a full 24 hours.
Another LOOP in Action
The Elkhart Rotary club recently funded a new LOOP hearing assistance system for the Matterhorn Event Center. The system can be used for any club meeting or social event held in the west end of the building that uses the sound system.
Sharon helped spearhead the installation by working with Sherman Hansen of the Rotary and Scott Peyton form American Loop Services. Scott is a veteran with a hearing loss and a passion to help people optimize their hearing in public venues. He was glad to help with another LOOP installation and hopes this one is just as successful as the ones being used at The Lerner Theater and the chapel at Hubbard Hill Retirement Center.
Why is Sharon advocating so much on behalf of Loop systems? Simple, “Hearing Loops decrease distraction, reduce distance, and eliminate reverberation to allow people with hearing loss to increase their ability to hear correctly and reduce listening fatigue,” says Sharon. Stop by the office and you can try it for yourself!
