One of my goals is to provide the next step in a team-based rehabilitation program, with you the audiologist, being the typical point of entry. Our programs compliments and supports your work by helping patients maximize their personal and professional potentials, hearing loss or not!
Our programs are done through a combination of mentoring, informational workshops and one-on-one coaching.
I draw from my two-year Peer Mentoring Certification from Gallaudet University and my own life and personal growth experiences while living with hearing loss.
Our programs are for your patients:
Who are plagued by unforeseen life challenges as a result of, or associated with their hearing loss
Who you believe will benefit from my assistance
Who will appreciate the program's guidance towards hearing loss acclimation via aural rehabilitation/habilitation and specialized life coaching.
I understand that your major goal is to provide your patients with the best hearing experience possible. You draw on your knowledge and skill in recommending and programming the best possible hearing aids, cochlear implants and assistive listening devices.
In addition, you want to help your patients successfully adapt to their hearing loss. This involves educating them on the practical aspects of living with and accepting their hearing loss. This education involves, but is not limited to, in-depth discussions of day-to-day living with hearing loss.
Unfortunately there is a limit to how much time can be spent by the Audiologist on this second step as it is very labor intensive and not practical from a time and insurance perspective.
This is where Hearing Loss Evolution services as a compliment to the second step of helping your patients adapt to their hearing loss. I seamlessly dovetails with your rehabilitation plans.
To quote one satisfied Audiologist: "Pat compliments what I do through offering tools that reassures and supports my patients and the work that I do"
