HLAA is a important resource for everyone. We are all touched by hearing loss in some way, personally or someone that we know and love at some point in our lives. Education and resources provided by HLAA help arm people with the tools to help improve their quality of life.

HLAA is an organization for people with hearing loss, started by a very special person, Rocky Stone in 1979. HLAA's philosophy is three-pronged: education, advocacy and support. We begin by finding out everything we can about our hearing loss - what causes it, what to do about it, how to understand the changes it brings to our lives. Secondly, by becoming educated consumers, we begin to pinpoint the things that are lacking in society for people with hearing loss and we learn how to advocate for ourselves and others. Third, we realize that if it weren't for HLAA, we would be lost in self-pity and frustration about our hearing loss, and we begin to reach out to others. We pay it forward. HLAA is truly vital to the 36 million people with hearing loss in the United States. Hearing loss affects everyone.

I have worked with elders for over 24 years. Through my husband's hearing loss, I became involved with the Hearing Loss Association of America, our state association and my local chapter. The knowledge I have gained has helped me immeasureably in my professional life. I can not only help my residents to be more actively involved in life, but I use the knowledge to train other caregivers in my state and across the country. I have seen how much the Hearing Loss Association has helped my husband to cope with his hearing loss. Being able to talk with others who share his loss, who understand how it impacts every aspect of his life, and who help each other to function in all situations has made an incredible difference in his life. He now talks with groups about Meniere's Disease and about the Bone Anchored Hearing Aid, and acts as a mentor for others who share is kind of hearing loss.

The Great!

Make it better known; have it reach even more people who need it's help.
