VALUE ADDED SERVICE INCLUDED
Qualified equipment hearing specialists will provide individual and group assessments to ensure proper equipment selection for optimum quality of hearing improvement.

• Additional hearing loss can occur if you purchase equipment that is too loud or does not accurately match your hearing loss. Appropriate equipment selection ensures safety for future hearing loss prevention.
• In addition to helping assess your hearing needs and selecting appropriate equipment, our specialists will take the time to show you how to use your equipment. Contact us if you do like to test out the equipment in person.

Before joining Deaf & Hear Alberta, Rebecca and her husband lived in Taiwan for eight years as Missionaries with a non-profit organization doing volunteer work in the Taiwanese Deaf community.

Now back in Canada, Rebecca is taking American Sign Language classes so as to be better equipped to fulfill the duties of her job by helping meet needs in the Deaf community. Having lived overseas and worked with people from many different backgrounds, cultures, and languages, she is thankful that her cross-cultural life experience will also enable her to better help those she works with here in Alberta.
