As a society we are becoming much more responsible about recycling and repurposing. This, however, rarely extends to hearing aids. Hearing loss in seniors is a leading factor in social isolation and social isolation is a leading cause of depression and a contributor to dementia. BSAA, in partnership with key agencies and personnel, attempted to get this recycling pilot project off the ground.
While we learned a great deal, we have been stymied by bureaucratic challenges thus far. We are not giving up though; just circling the wagons and revising a new approach.
