The access hears program

Accessible

An evidence-based intervention that systematically addresses key barriers to hearing care, including cost, complexity, and stigma.

Affordable

We utilize a cost-effective approach to delivering the program alongside low-cost, effective hearables or ear wearables.

EMPOWERING

Empowering older adults to use a new technology to improve communication and re-engage with their loved ones and their communities is at the core of the Access HEARS mission.

Hearables

We utilize devices selected based on their functionality, cost, and design characteristics, and the choice of device is based on discussion between the trainer and the client.

Our Focus

Providing hearing care for all

Access HEARS is the pioneer social enterprise working to disrupt the current hearing care industry by providing affordable, accessible hearing care through a sustainable, community-delivered model.
