New Directed Audio System
Allows Hearing Impaired to Listen to TV at Higher Volume without Headsets

Do others complain that you put the TV on too loud? Are you struggling to hear the TV and would like to bring the enjoyment back to watching television? Being able to hear and understand the TV better is a top priority for many - and turning up the volume doesn't always resolve the problem. Whether you use a hearing aid or not, you'll be glad to know of new technology that will completely change the way you watch (And listen!) to TV.

HyperSound Clear 500P is a directed audio system that allows you to listen at the volume you require without disrupting the enjoyment of family and friends. It beams customized, direct sound to you without disturbing others. With no headphones required, you can listen like you used to - no strings (Or wires!) attached. HyperSound Clear 500P is not just a speaker - it's an FDA-approved medical device that is programmed to your specific needs by a trained audiologist. Your system will be set up by a professional in your home so that your sound is ideally customized to your needs. You'll watch whatever, whenever - and hear everything! Listen to the ref over the crowd, catch every word on the news and never miss a moment during family movie night again. The state-of-the-art system improves sound clarity and speech intelligibility on all your favorite programs - even those hard-to-understand English shows. HyperSound Clear 500 is programmed to your specific hearing profile and preferences, delivering a truly-customized listening experience. You can try it out for yourself on Thursday, March 24 - or call to schedule a personalized appointment.
Nola Aronson's Advanced Audiology has helped SCVians hear better for over 30 years, providing customized solutions using state-of-the-art technology. Hearing evaluations are complimentary and can be scheduled by phone.

Rely on a Visiting Angel
Visiting Angels provides homecare services to seniors on a flexible hourly basis. Angels are available any time day or night, on a temporary or long term basis for a minimum of four hours per visit. They can care for individuals who are recovering from injury or illness, provide respite care to families, or in temporary situations such as vacations. Visiting Angels meets with families individually to develop a unique plan of care tailored to their needs. Caring for an older family member is very rewarding but can be exhausting. It's important for family caregivers to have a break to continue to participate in their regular activities, rest, and maintain their health. A Visiting Angels caregiver can provide that break and allow the family a much needed opportunity to refresh themselves, confident that their loved one is being well cared for. Visiting Angels meets with families at their request to offer suggestions and support, including exploring community resources.
