The Advanced Family Hearing Aid Center, located at 2027 N. Donovan Avenue in Crystal River, is the latest Citrus County Business to be trained and certified Dementia Friendly. Company owner Jerillyn Clark explains, “Many do not realize that the symptoms of hearing loss and Alzheimer’s disease are nearly identical, and it is important for our staff to fully understand dementia in order to provide superior service to our clients.”
Advanced Family Hearing’s services include in-office or mobile on-site hearing testing, hearing aid fitting and sales, and hearing aid service and adjustment for most brands, including Veteran Administration service at no charge.
Clark continues, “Alzheimer’s and dementia training for all of our staff now places us in a position to better serve individuals who may be living with dementia, and their caregivers and families.”
Advanced Family Hearing Aid Center was trained and certified by the Inverness-based Coping with Dementia LLC, which has trained more than 35 Citrus County businesses and organizations.
