are deaf. You can’t hear your alarm clock. You can’t hear your text messages.
You miss out on social interactions. That’s what life is like for deaf people,
and it can be very isolating.
A hearing dog can make a big difference.
A big part of a hearing dog’s job is to alert their deaf recipient to sounds they would otherwise miss. Simple sounds we take for granted like the doorbell, and even danger signals like the fire alarm.
Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference in deaf people’s lives.
Have you ever stayed at home waiting for a delivery?
Or waiting for someone to pop round? Imagine how frustrating it must be when you cannot hear the doorbell or a knock at your door.
Come and learn more.
