Happy New Year

Happy New Year! It is hard to believe we are half way through January in the year 2015. The time is flying by and we have been very busy since the holidays and have some new exciting things to share.

First, we want to tell you about the organization we selected this month as our Community Spotlight – The Starkey Foundation. This organization’s mission, “So the World May Hear,” is about bringing understanding between people through caring and sharing. They conduct hearing missions in the United States and around the globe in an effort to bring the gift of hearing to those in need. They fit more than 100,000 hearing aids annually to children and adults through their global hearing missions and the daily efforts of their domestic Hear Now Program.

Hear Now is an application-based program that provides hearing help to low-income Americans. Each person that is helped is fit with new, top-of-the-line digital hearing aids that are customized to their hearing loss. The Starkey Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to change lives around the world. At Audiology and Hearing Aid Center, we are donating used hearing aids to The Starkey Foundation to be refurbished and fit on patients who are unable to afford hearing devices. We also offer to fit these patients with new aids at no charge.

We are also doing our part by spreading the word to our own network of family, friends and our wonderful patients. You can do your part as well by tapping into your network of friends, family and colleagues and raise funds to support the gift of hearing. If you have a hearing aid you would like to donate, please let us know. The Starkey Foundation will be sure to fit it on a patient in need.

Second, we wanted to let you know that we are holding a very special event from January 26th through January 29th at all of our Scottsdale locations. We invite you to come in for a complimentary hearing screening and to learn about our newest technology, the Alta Pros. We are offering $500 OFF 2 Alta Pros, a FREE 3rd Year Warranty, a FREE 14-Day Trial Period, same day fittings, and 0% financing available. It is our goal to assist our patients with the ability to hear all the voices and sounds around them. We don’t want anyone to let the sounds in the world go by.

And as you may know, Audiology and Hearing Aid Center launched Mission 1000 last year to offer FREE hearing screenings to anyone over the age of 55, as studies have shown that more than 50% of us over this age will have hearing loss. So as part of your overall healthcare, get a hearing test. Just call today for an appointment and it is complimentary. You will be very pleased you added this screening to your overall healthcare checkup.
