Living Well with Hearing Loss

Living Well is a counseling tool that uses photos of common situations to help your clients identify when and where it’s most important for them to communicate well. Understanding these priorities can help you recommend the best hearing technologies and communication strategies for each client.

What are the benefits?

  • Identify and understand your clients’ priorities
  • Personalize and focus treatment plans to improve outcomes
  • Easily recommend appropriate hearing technologies and communication strategies
  • Involve family members to support communication needs
