Adult Loss of Hearing Association
A close friend of mine lost his Grandfather a few weeks ago. Never easy. His Grandpa was hard of hearing and my friend asked if I knew anyone who could use his almost new hearing aids. I said yes. When they arrived I brought them to ALOHA for delivery to the Sertoma Hearing Hearing Aid Bank of Arizona. They work with the University of Arizona to make hearing aids available to adults - usually seniors - who otherwise couldn't afford any. When you can't hear, your quality of life goes down. People often start to isolate. As Helen Keller said..."Blindness separates people from things;Deafness separates people from people." A big, heartfelt thank you to my friend who sent in his Grandfather's hearing aids. 😘😘---by Sherry Whitfield, Board Member, ALOHA Want to donate some hearing aids to help someone?

Third Tuesday Presentation on May 15 – Service Dogs for Veterans!
Third Tuesday speakers meeting on May 15 at 1pm:FREE Service Dogs for Veterans!Dog Trainer Jamie Robinson has lived with and worked with dogs, cats, horses, and parrots for nearly 40 years. In the early days before the wealth of information on the internet, she apprenticed under various trainers in several States. In the late 80’s to the early 90’s Jamie adopted an Australian Shepherd named Princess. This led her to explore the agility arena and she started learning new training techniques and methods of handling behavior issues. This started a journey now known as “crossing-over.” In 2004, Jamie moved to Tucson, Arizona and started developing a cutting edge philosophy and the methods to go along with it. This new methodology is called 'Structured Game Training' and has its basis in the type of training done in the agility world. Structured Game Training lends itself to every aspect of training and behavior and creates a dog who can perceive and resolve the problems and puzzles of living in a human world. These training techniques fully engage the dog and have proven to be extremely useful in resolving behavior issues - and in the training service dogs.Earlier this year Jamie's work came to the attention of the American Warrior Initiative and she was given a grant to train Service dogs for Veterans. The dogs are free of charge to a qualified veteran and can be trained to do a variety of tasks to assist their handler. This may include things such as hearing assistance, help with PTSD, mobility assistance, medical alerts for conditions such as diabetes, seizure disorders, extreme allergies, etc. and much more. Each dog's training program is tailored to the veteran's needs.Jamie will speak about this program at our Third Tuesday speakers meeting on May 15 at 1pm at the ALOHA headquarters, 4001 E.
