Join hosts Wendy and Mike in conversation with the eloquent Nancy Holmes of London, Ontario who shares her experiences with her father’s hearing loss. A touching tribute to her brilliant father with some real nuggets of wisdom for communication partners of those with untreated hearing loss.

A note from our guest, Nancy Holmes:

Isn’t it always the way … you engage in a stimulating conversation, but it’s too late, on the way home that you think of the important thing that you should have said!

As I drove home this morning, I realized I should have told you about my father’s final wishes. The life-long learner, the career scientist and educator wanted to donate his body to Schulich Medical School, intending to continue teaching, even in death.

Unfortunately that did not happen, for a number of reasons. However, it occurred to me that, perhaps in a rather perverse legacy, perhaps someone will learn something valuable from our interview about his experience with hearing loss and my own as caregiver. The Professor lives on!
