Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors - Session II, Living With Hearing Loss
331 East 70th Street
New York, NY 10021
The Roundtable for Boomers & Seniors provides an opportunity for constituents to come together to explore life issues that are relevant across the age span. At each session, attendees hear from and engage with professionals who are knowledgeable on topics that are of most concern to the growing population of older adults in New York City. Over the course of five sessions, the Roundtable looks at a specific issue from different perspectives each month.
This year’s series will focus on Living Well and Aging Well in Your Community. The second roundtable will take place Thursday, December 12 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, 331 East 70th Street, and the topic will be Living With Hearing Loss. 33% of individuals 65 and older and 66% of those 75 and older have hearing loss. Delaying treatment puts older adults at greater risk of dementia, falls and social isolation. Learn about the emotional impact of hearing loss, technologies to improve your hearing, how you can advocate for yourself, and enjoy the New York City’s cultural life despite hearing loss.
Speakers will include Katherine Bouton, President, Hearing Loss Association of America – New York City Chapter; Carol Karasick, Secretary, Hearing Loss Association of America - New York City Chapter; Carolyn Stern, Manager, Center for Hearing and Communication; and Jeff Wax, LCSW-R, Director, Baker Family Emotional Health and Wellness Center, Center for Hearing Loss and Communication.
