Do you have a hearing aid or hearing aid batteries that are not being used? You can donate them to our clinic and help someone in need!

We have families on a wait list for donated hearing aids as they cannot afford to purchase new ones. Priority is given to those who have no other resources for hearing aids, including insurance or funding through provincial or federal programs. If available, a one-year supply of donated batteries is provided with each donated hearing aid.

Hearing is what connects us. Help us give someone back the gift of hearing!

“It was so touching receiving a letter from Salus Hearing Centre informing us that my husband’s hearing aids were provided to a lady in a local nursing home with dementia who had lost her hearing aids.”

According to Statistics Canada, more than one million adults across the country have some kind of hearing loss; many of them are seniors that cannot afford treatment. A new hearing aid can cost between $1,000 and $3,000 in Ontario*.

Your generous donation can help connect a senior to their friends, family and the world around them and reduce their risk of dementia and falls. Donating is as easy as 1-2-3.

Donating a Hearing Aid

  1. Check what style of hearing aid you have. Only Behind-the-ear type can be donated, as custom made hearing aid that sits fully in the ear cannot be reused.
  2. Call our clinic to inform us that you would like to donate a hearing aid(s) to our recycling program 289-963-1512.
  3. Drop off the hearing aid(s) during office hours or arrange for a pick up, if the service is available in your area.

Hearing aids that are less than 5 years old will be provided to a family on our wait list. Those over 5 years old will be donated to the Canadian International Hearing Services (CIHS), to be sent to developing countries.

Donations may be tax deductible. Please contact your tax advisor on the value of the donation. Salus Hearing Centre is not able to determine a tax-deductible value for each hearing aid due to the age, make and condition of the donated hearing aid.

Donating Hearing Aid Batteries

  1. Check the expiry date on the batteries. Batteries should have a coloured sticker tab on one side (orange, brown, yellow or blue). Expired or used hearing aid batteries cannot be donated.
  2. Call our clinic to inform us that you would like to donate hearing aid batteries to our recycling program 289-963-1512.
  3. Drop off the hearing aid batteries during office hours.

This program is not part of any trade-up or trade-in program; it is strictly for individuals to donate an old/no longer in use hearing aid or unused and unexpired hearing aid batteries.

If you know someone in need of hearing aids and would like to add their name to our donation program please call us today 289-963-1512.

We would like to thank the Maple Lions Club for accepting donated hearing aids from the community and submitting them to our recycling program!

 

* This range of cost per hearing aid is based on the price of a hearing aid with a service plan and deducting the Ontario Assisstive Devices Program grant. Price varies based on hearing aid technology level and service plan length.
