Services & Programs
Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive listening devices can play a major role in managing and living with hearing loss. Many individuals with hearing loss find their hearing aids and/or cochlear implants alone are not enough. Using assistive listening technology along with hearing aids and cochlear implants can greatly enrich one’s life.
Living With Hearing Loss
The Sudbury Branch offers a number of workshops and presentations in Sudbury and across North Eastern Ontario. These workshops are designed to help people with hearing loss become more informed about hearing loss, how to live, work and cope with it. They are also a wonderful resource for family and friends of those with hearing loss.
Speech Reading Classes
Do you wear hearing aids or a cochlear implant and still struggle to communicate? Contrary to what many people think, hearing aids, cochlear implants and other assistive listening technology do not restore hearing to a normal range of hearing in the same way that lenses correct vision.
Living with Tinnitus
Although there is no cure for tinnitus, in somecases, tinnitus can be managed. CHHA-Sudbury Branch’s ‘Living with Tinnitus’ workshops covers some of the possible causes and triggers of tinnitus while also reviewing some of the management options including conventional and alternative treatments currently available.
CHHA-Sudbury Branch is pleased to offer a number of programs and services at no charge.
Currently, the Sudbury Branch receives no government funding. All of our supports and services are available thanks predominantly to proceeds from the Ultimate Dream Home Draw as well as private donations and bequests.
