Located in Tucson, the Adult Loss of Hearing Association (ALOHA) is a nonprofit community-based agency that provides advocacy, education and support to adults with hearing loss. The patients served typically were not deaf in their early years and acquired language, but lost hearing later in life due to illness, aging or environmental factors.
ALOHA offers peer support groups, classes and other local services to Tucson area residents suffering with hearing loss.
Let’s Loop Tucson!
A hearing loop is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The installation of “hearing loops” systems allows churches, movie theaters and other public venues the opportunity to broadcast sound directly to hearing aid users. While most hearing aids deliver crisp sound, even in noisy environments, the addition of this technology enables direct sound transmission with far better quality.
Let’s Loop Tucson! is an initiative of ALOHA Arizona to help build a robust network of venues in Tucson, where individuals with hearing loss can connect and enjoy without struggling to hear.
