The Beltone Hearing Care Foundation
Hearing connects us to the world in a way no other sense can.
For over 80 years, it has been our mission at Beltone to help the world hear better. Our passion for innovating new technologies and providing superior care has helped to enrich the quality of life for countless hearing impaired individuals.
In addition to caring for people on a daily basis, our team knows there are those in need of hearing help who are unable to access the care they need. In an effort to help meet that need, we created the Beltone Hearing Care Foundation.
What is the Hearing Care Foundation?
The Beltone Hearing Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that donates hearing instruments to qualifying individuals who are in need of hearing help but cannot afford the cost of hearing aids.
In addition to individuals, select organizations are eligible to receive assistance from the Hearing Care Foundation.
How do I apply to the Hearing Care Foundation?
The first step for applying to the Hearing Care Foundation is to visit a Beltone location and speak with the hearing care practitioner, who can explain the program guidelines to you and walk you through the application process.
Here are just a few stories of the people who have been helped by the Beltone Hearing Care Foundation
Beltone Arizona is proud to be part of the Beltone Foundation
serving the community and providing hearing solutions to those in need
Calvin Long has struggled with his hearing since he was 4 years old, and now at 62, Beltone Arizona is proud to have been able to help Calvin Long with his hearing by providing him with custom-fit hearing aids.
Joann originally came to Beltone Arizona to see if there was anything that could be done to help her hear better, despite not being able to afford much and having been discouraged. She knew how important it was to have her hearing loss treated, since she struggled with understanding simple conversations with people around her. She had also studied health prevention and became concerned about the effect that hearing loss can have in relation to dementia and cognitive decline. A motivation for treating her hearing loss was to delay comorbidities as much as possible, especially dementia.
The national Beltone Foundation approved Joann’s application which was submitted by our hearing care team in Scottsdale. At her hearing aid fitting appointment, she was in awe when we first turned on her new hearing aids. Her grandson who accompanied her was thrilled to see her visual reaction. Joann commented on the sound from the air conditioning, asking if she was supposed to hear it – immediately, that’s how much her hearing improved.
