Hearing Program

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 our hearing project? 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 it Work ?

How does the program work? Income requirements are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but recipients must be low-income. The hearing 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.
