This program is available as a video with ASL interpretation and closed captioning (see below). Thank you to Maura Nolin and Grace Cooney from Pine Tree Society Interpreting Services for donating their interpretation services for this show.
We operate in a world that expects us to hear normally, but hearing loss and hearing impairment are extremely common. This is especially relevant in Maine, the oldest state in the nation. One in three people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 have difficulty hearing. There are some groundbreaking programs for the deaf community. We examine hearing loss and the latest advances in technology to help those with hearing problems.
