MAY IS NATIONAL BETTER HEARING MONTH!

Beauport Hearing Care Collects Unused Hearing Aids for Charity

Raises Awareness of Better Hearing Month through ‘Orphan Hearing Aid’ Drive

Beauport Hearing Care of Magnolia is celebrating Better Hearing Month this

May by collecting “Orphan Hearing Aids” that are no longer needed and

donating them to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

Judi Hodge Bergeron, board certified hearing specialist and owner at

Beauport Hearing Care, said, “We are excited to join with community

partners to collect ‘Orphan Hearing Aids’ all around Cape Ann. Donated

hearing aids will bring the precious gift of hearing to people that cannot

afford them.”

Beginning May 1st, look for the blue Orphan Hearing Aid collection boxes at

Aberdeen Home Care, Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, Rose Baker Senior

Center, Cape Ann Veterans Services, Cape Ann YMCA, St. John’s Episcopal

Church, SeniorCare, Salem Council on Aging, Manchester Council on Aging, Rockport Senior

Center, Senator Bruce Tarr’s Office, Second Glance, and more locations with addresses listed at

beauporthearing.com.

Hearing aid donations help people locally and around the world. Beauport Hearing Care

established a partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation a few years ago by providing free

hearing aids to impacted survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing. More recently Beauport

Hearing Care helped Gloucester’s Holy Family Mission obtain free hearing aids through a Starkey

Hearing Foundation partner in Santiago, Dominican Republic.

Numerous studies have shown that our hearing is very important to our overall health, and

especially to brain wellness and function. David Bergeron, brain fitness specialist and owner at

Beauport Hearing Care, said, “Hearing loss symptoms are often mistaken as dementia, but research

suggests that ignoring hearing loss is associated with accelerated loss of brain cognitive functioning.

Everyone should schedule an annual hearing test.”

Hearing and Brain Fitness

Hosted by St. John’s Episcopal Church

48 Middle Street, Gloucester, MA  01930

April 21, 2018, 11 AM – 1 PM

This first Hearing Mission event introduces the human hearing system, how to protect good hearing, and the restorative benefits of aural rehabilitation. Attend this event to learn about the human hearing system, your brain, and how you can keep your brain sharper through better hearing. There will be door prizes and gifts too! We will answer your questions about hearing aids and explain the role of aural rehabilitation and brain fitness in hearing health. Beauport Hearing Care takes a more holistic approach. Good nutrition and exercise matter. Better hearing is not just about hearing aids! In addition, hearing screenings will also be offered at the program. And free hearing tests with personalized hearing coaching will be scheduled for those that request it.

Mission participants that need hearing aids but cannot afford them may apply for free hearing aids through the Beauport Hearing Mission in partnership with the Starkey Hearing Foundation. But whether or not you qualify for free, all participants are introduced to a new way of thinking about their hearing and health.

Hearing and healing are central to every spiritual and religious tradition! The vast majority of traditions are oral traditions, e.g. they have no written language. ‘Hearing’ God’s Word is universal to all traditions. Moreover, science is discovering that hearing is the primary sense to help the brain organize and prioritize all sensory inputs. The beautiful human hearing system bridges our physical and spiritual worlds. Healthy hearing promotes measurably better social and physical health. Socialization is important to maintain good brain health, and hearing is essential to socialization. Hearing is also necessary to understand the advice of your doctor.

The Beauport Hearing Mission demonstrates one way St. John’s Community Health Ministry enables better health. Like healthy hearing, other health problems like diabetes also require a more holistic and social intervention to be most effective. We need your help! Come see how the Hearing Mission is leading. Consider volunteering for St. John’s Community Health Ministry by becoming a St. John’s ‘hearing coordinator’.
