We're here to help you Hear!
published July 2014
Dave and Barbara moved to the Valley to
settle down, and like many others, to enjoy
the sun and a taste of the good life. Evenings
were spent with friends, and he and
his wife both felt great and anticipated a
long and active retirement.

as Dave began to realize that something

conversations with friends and family,
Dave's quality of life improved.
During later free maintenance visits, Barbara
told the staff that he hears better now
than she does and can hear his favorite
shows on low volume, a big difference from
his hearing previously.
