Hearing Aid Bank

The Hearing Aid Bank is an application process for residents of Cape Breton in financial crisis who have exhausted all other means.

Once your application is accepted, you will receive one behind-the-ear hearing device. We do not know at the time of acceptance how long you will have to wait to receive your hearing aid as we rely on a good pool of hearing aid donations so that we can find a hearing aid that best matches the type and degree of your hearing loss. Rest assure though, that once you are approved, you will receive one hearing aid from the bank. You will be responsible for the cost of the ear mold / earpiece / tubing – approx. $125 and the cost of batteries.

The Hearing Aid Bank relies on donations of behind-the-ear style hearing aids. Unfortunately we can not accept hearing aids that are molded to fit in the ear as these only fit the ear shape of the person they were designed for and will not properly fit another person.

Help us give back to the community. If you know anyone who has a hearing aid that goes behind the ear that is no longer being used, please consider making a donation to the Cape Breton Hearing Aid Bank so we can continue to assist Capers in need.

For more information about the Hearing Aid Bank or if you would like a donation box at your place of business, contact Rosalind or Clare at 902-564-0003 or cbdeaf@ns.sympatico.ca<.
