Hearing Aid for Sarah
When Sarah, 71, had to have her right leg amputated, she taught herself a new way to go down the stairs. She has managed her disability well, getting around by wheelchair and participating regularly in social and golden age programs. But nothing could have prepared Sarah for her newest problem – hearing loss. She has suddenly gone from social to withdrawn and from feeling optimistic to desperate.
Sarah lives alone and relies on social security benefits, keeping her expenses within the confines of that modest amount. There is no way that it can stretch to cover the hearing aids that would make all the difference to her current outlook on life.
