One that doesn’t merely promise more, but delivers more: more communication, more participation and more opportunities to do what you love to do. That’s because, starting from day one, Starkey has operated under the single-minded purpose that “Hearing is our concern.” And it’s why, since day two, we’ve been committed to constantly improving the technology of hearing — and creating the best hearing aids possible.

Our network of Starkey hearing professionals, including audiologists, hearing aid specialists and ENT doctors, share this philosophy and each will work closely with you to help ensure you get the world’s best hearing solutions.

Starkey believes that independent practices provide state of the art products through highly qualified personnel. When you choose to improve your life through a journey of better hearing, make sure to visit a Starkey recommended clinic, and always insist on a Starkey product.

Many seniors wait until they’re faced with a crisis or a medical emergency – a fall, a sudden illness or a surgery from which recovery would be difficult or impossible on their own. They may not realize that getting the right support in the first place can mitigate the risks of more serious incidents. Others seek help in advance of serious need – they just want help with meals and housekeeping or perhaps a bit of companionship from time to time.

An exclusive offer for Royal Canadian Legion members: receive a 10% discount off We Care services*

*Discount not valid in conjunction with any other discount offer(s) and is based on standard local rates. Limited time offer available at participating locations only. Subject to change without notice. Limit one per customer. Discount applies only to privately funded services excluding foot care and occupational health.

For more information, please call 1-855-229-3227 or visit www.wecare.ca
