The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending seniors to practice social distancing while more is understood about the new coronavirus. In the meantime, seniors are forced to be at home or in nursing homes alone. Away from their families, and without visitors, many are coping by speaking to their families over the phone. But what about those who suffer from hearing loss? Our team is happy to report that there are options. ClearCaptions is a real-time phone captioning service that provides the service entirely FREE for individuals who suffer from hearing loss! To qualify, a healthcare professional must certify that the client suffers from hearing loss through a filled-out form that states that the free service is needed. Once approved, a ClearCaptions representative can install the device and provide a tutorial to the user. This service is the perfect solution for seniors who are isolated at home during this crisis and have a difficult time speaking over the phone. ClearCaptions is an Approved Vendor and continuously supports the needs of our community through their spectacular service and honor of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Readers, if you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, call your nearest medical facility and seek care right away. If you have an underlying condition like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or respiratory conditions, stay away from crowded areas or places. These guidelines were provided by both the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. There is no need to panic but stay informed.
