Returning home from military service can bring a deafening silence, which can lead to other problems, like feelings of isolation and depression. Additionally, hearing loss can often be overshadowed by other service-connected disabilities such as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), and more. This is why we’re honored to present the Heroes With Hearing Loss® program.
Heroes With Hearing Loss® aims to connect veterans with viable answers for coping with hearing loss and other conditions that may come with it. They work to connect veterans, their families, friends, and support networks with each other, strengthening relationships that keep them healthier and happier.
Captioned telephone technology
Captioned telephones work like a traditional phone – veterans can talk and listen to each other, but there’s one significant difference – captions of what’s said to the veteran are displayed on the built-in screen of the captioned telephone. All that’s required is standard telephone service and a high-speed internet connection. The captioned telephone service* is available at no cost and can be accessed 24/7 nationwide.
Veterans with hearing loss can receive a captioned telephone at no cost** through the Heroes With Hearing Loss® program. This program is sponsored by Hamilton® CapTel® and is independent of the VA disability claim process. The veteran’s hearing loss does not have to be service-related.
