ALDA Chicago

Hearing loss? We can help--

because we've been there.

ALDA Chicago is a group of people with various degrees of hearing loss. Some wear hearing aids or have cochlear implants, while others use neither.

Our mission is to provide support, education and camaraderie for adults with hearing loss.

Our motto, based on our members' dedication to communicating with each other and engaging with the world, is "whatever works."

In February, ALDA Chicago members gathered at the home of Tom & Laura Garvey for a candle making demonstration and lunch. Pictured (L-R): Tom Garvey, Linda Belice, Larry Test, Dawn Linder, Karen Krull, Sarah Wegley, and Isabel Chang.
