Robert Rozek has been a customer at HearingLife for many years. He has a severe to profound hearing loss in his left ear and a profound loss in his right ear. He was wearing two different hearing aids, one of which was seven years older than the other, as he could only afford one device at a time. That’s why the team at HearingLife in Stevens Point, WI was pleased to present him with a pair of free hearing aids.
Robert has worked in noisy environments for most of his adult life, and he is also genetically predisposed to hearing loss. Robert found himself really struggling to understand speech clearly, since his devices had become very worn out and were no longer able to help him meet his hearing needs. As the primary caregiver to his wife, who has multiple health issues, and a regular caregiver to his granddaughter, he needed to be able to hear so that he could attend to their needs. He was also missing out on meaningful conversations with family as a result of his hearing loss.
Robert tried Oticon Opn™ technology and was amazed by the difference. He is excited about the advances in technology since his last set of outdated devices, and is also pleased that the devices are rechargeable. Robert’s new hearing aids have enabled him to resume being the very caring family man that he is!
