JDA staff helping man with hearing aid

"Mum seemed withdrawn and vacant. It was a couple of weeks before we realised her hearing aids weren't working properly. I contacted the JDA "Hearing Matters In Care" service and within two days the hearing aids were fixed and mum was back to her old self."

We provide regular, on-site specialist hearing support services for older people with hearing loss who are housebound or living in residential care.

Our highly trained staff and volunteers give practical and emotional support to residents and carers to ensure older people living in care or independently enjoy a more stimulating later life.
