The Oro Valley Peer Group has been put on hold. We will let you know when the meeting will be resumed. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Peer discussion groups focus on positive coping strategies for dealing with hearing loss. It's also an effective way of providing knowledge, support, and coping strategies to new hearing aid and cochlear implant users.
What is an ALOHA Peer Discussion Group?
A Peer Support Group is a small number of people that meet regularly to help one another cope with hearing loss. They are peers with a common impairment. Although most in attendance are hard of hearing, often family members and friends attend to understand better the coping struggles of those with hearing loss. Communication is a two-way street between the hearing and hard of hearing.
How does it work?
The group, usually facing each other in a circle (easier to read lips), shares experiences, common struggles in coping with noise, what works best in terms of hearing aids and other assistive devices, humorous happenings, and just about anything else that is of current interest. The experiences of one person may be helpful to another in the group. Group members have the opportunity to raise concerns of their own or respond to the concerns of others.
*** Peer Support Groups do not serve as a professional medical or audiology resource. ***
Who can attend?
ALOHA Peer Support Groups are FREE and open to the public. Spouses, friends, and caretakers of people who are hard of hearing are encouraged to attend.
