Hearing loss is one of the most prevalent chronic health conditions in America. Forty-eight million Americans suffer hearing loss. They are the largest special needs group with serious quality-of-life and accessibility issues according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
The Café is the place to gain understanding about hearing loss through education, information, advocacy, technology and peer mentoring. The Hear Now Café is an exciting learning experience.
The ramp for hard of hearing is not built out of wood and steel, but a better method of communication called hearing accessibility. It is hearing friendly and hearing accessible for hard of hearing people to see, hear and understand everything. The Hear Now Café is equipped with the latest FM listening devices and the telecoil loop amplified system for those who have “T” switches in their hearing aids.
