A Higher Purpose

The CaptionCall blog was created for a higher purpose—to encourage people with hearing loss to seek treatment early and actively manage their hearing health.  We invite Healthcare and Senior Living Professionals to share these posts regularly with their patients/clients.  Working together we can help people with hearing loss stay socially connected for a longer, happier, healthier life!
