Town of Torbay Participate in Hearing Loss Challenge
In support of the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association of Newfoundland & Labrador, staff with the Town of Torbay will be participating in the 2016 Hearing Loss Challenge. The challenge will take place on Friday December 2nd from 11:00am to 12:00pm.
20% of adults have at least mild hearing loss and it is more prevalent in older age groups, with 46% of adults aged 60 to 79 experiencing hearing challenges. (Statistics Canada)
So, for an hour on Friday December 2nd, to find out what daily life can be like for those with hearing loss, staff will be wearing earplugs as we go about our routines.
