Living and feeling better can start with a simple step-connecting. Health Connections Mendip is provided by your Mendip GP practices to improve your health and wellbeing.
We train dogs to alert deaf people to sounds they would otherwise miss – simple sounds that many people take for granted like the doorbell, alarm clock and even danger signals like the fire alarm. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives.
A hearing dog and their deaf recipient need to be carefully matched to ensure the partnership will work well. Matches can take up to three years. There is so much more to find out so please contact Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
