Being able to participate in the Living Well with Hearing Loss class at St. Luke’s Home was a great learning experience. As a first year audiology student, I found the class at St. Luke’s to be a valuable learning experience for me and the group participants. At the first class I realized that many of the individuals were not surrounded by their families on a day-to-day basis. Instead they are surrounded by many different people in a congested environment. I began to think about who their communication partners are and what needs they might have.
