Sad news from ALOHA

It is with a heavy heart that we share this news. Loretta, our Office Coordinator, passed away October 3rd after a long battle with medical complications. She has been a part of our ALOHA family for over 30 years and gave her heart and soul to all who have walked through our doors. Those who knew her personally understand it is impossible to honor her in such a short message, but she wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. (That is our Loretta – always so prompt.) Soon we will be sharing with you our memories of this amazing lady and celebrate her dedication to improving the lives of people with hearing loss.

Arrangements are being made by her family and will be available shortly.

We have missed Loretta’s smile over the past few months so share one for her today – smiles are contagious.

Airlines need to consider the folks with Hearing loss!

Changes in air travel communication could help those with hearing loss

Contributed by Lisa Packer, staff writer, Healthy Hearing | Thursday, July 7th, 2016

It is no secret that air travel has become more and more unpleasant in recent years. Oversold flights, minimal food service and airlines’ desire to squeeze more passengers in by eliminating legroom are just a few of the indignities travelers must suffer in order to get to their destinations. But for those with hearing loss, airplane travel can be particularly difficult. Hearing loss affects everything from pre-flight boarding to gate change announcements and in-flight communication, leading to frustration and misery.

challenging.

Especially for those with hearing loss, we still have a long way to go until all passengers can travel with equal access to services. Fortunately, vocal advocates have targeted a few specific areas of air travel communication to make the expression “flying the friendly skies” more of a reality. Even better? You can help.
