OUR MISSION: To maximize whatever hearing we may have so we can stay connected to family, friends and enjoy activities to the fullest.

Hearing loss ranges from having difficulty understanding or hearing certain sounds to total deafness. We schedule a variety of educational programs that benefit people with hearing loss, their friends, family and those interested in hearing issues.

The Hearing Well Club is self-supported and seeks the support of its members through membership and donations. Membership is $15 per calendar year and funds pay for the room rental, photocopies flyers, refreshments, name tags, and office supplies.  Please complete a membership form to join and become a member.  Members get special name tags that show their support for the Hearing Well Club. membershipForm2

Our guest speakers come from the hearing loss community and most are providers of goods and services. No goods or services are available for purchase at the meetings. The Hearing Well Club does not endorse any one provider, product or service. We provide information from a variety of sources so that you can educate yourself to make the best decisions for you and your hearing loss.

We encourage you to mingle with other members to learn about their experiences and coping strategies. You will learn you are not alone with your hearing loss.  Learn how to survive and thrive in spite of hearing loss.

Our meetings are captioned and looped so you won’t miss a single word.
