After searching online for help with hearing loss, Richard Sonnenblick came across Gulfstream Goodwill Industries’ Deaf Services Program. Earlier this month, he became Gulfstream Goodwill’s first hard-of-hearing participant to be fitted with hearing aids.
“I’m looking forward to being able to hear better,” Sonnenblick said.
Recently, the organization’s Deaf Services Department expanded to provide free audiologist services, including hearing aids, cleanings, tube replacements and hearing tests to the community.
To qualify for the service, individuals must be 60 or older, live in Palm Beach County and show financial need. To learn more, visit www.gulfstreamgoodwill.org/deaf-services.
