Calhoun County Public Health Department’s
Senior Hearing and Vision Services Offers

Hearing Screenings, Hearing Aids,
Eye Exams, & Eye Glasses to Low-Income Seniors

 The Calhoun County Public Health Department (CCPHD) Senior Hearing and Vision Services programs support the Senior Millage Safety, Dignity, and Independence goals by offering Calhoun County Senior Citizens FREE:

  • Hearing and vision screenings
  • Hearing aids
  • Eye exams, and
  • Glasses

         Qualified participants must be 60 years or older and meet program income guidelines.

With improved hearing ability, seniors are able communicate with physicians and other health care providers, friends, family, and even strangers when in need of assistance whether in a grocery store or in a parking lot, or even in an emergency situation. Improved hearing significantly increases a senior’s safety, ability to live and interact independently, and maintain and potentially improve their health.

Improving seniors’ vision could allow them to continue driving safely, reading, watching television, or simply performing common household or personal tasks. The ability to see provides seniors, in particular, the ability to accurately take their medication, know who is knocking at the door, watch weather tracking in the event of a storm, or read recipes and food labels.

By giving seniors access to hearing and vision services, we help to enhance seniors’ quality of life and seniors maintain their independence.

Services are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualified seniors.

If you are having troubles seeing or hearing, are 60 years or older and meet program guidelines, please contact the health department at 269-969-6377 for more information.
