Northfield Presbyterian Church, has a hearing loop to help you
Hearing loops improve hearing aids!
Digital hearing aids have significantly improved in the last decade, but they do not restore hearing to normal. Difficulties often remain when in challenging listening situations. Hearing loops help hearing aid users and others overcome this problem by broadcasting sound directly to the hearing aid without background noise or reverberation.
What is a hearing loop and how does it work?
Hearing Loops allow people who wear hearing aids to directly receive the sound from the PA system in their own hearing aids without having to pick up a separate listening device.
Do you use hearing aids?
If you wear hearing instruments you will need to find out if your hearing aids have the wireless receiver called a T-coil or Telecoil in order to hear better with the hearing loops in our facilities. The T-coil program is accessed by pushing a button on a hearing aid. This T-coil program has to be activated by your audiologist. Talk to your audiologist to find out if your instruments can have both a T (no background noise pick up) and an MT program (blended micro-phone & T-coil program).
Headset receivers are available for those without T-coil hearing aids.
