About Us

Hearing Like Me

HearingLikeMe.com is a news and lifestyle website for people whose lives are affected by hearing loss.

We bring together people from all around the world to share stories that inspire hope in almost any hearing loss situation. We created this site with a simple idea: Sharing our stories with each other is a powerful thing. Together, we can learn to live with hearing loss more successfully and advocate in a more meaningful way.

All of our stories are written by people with hearing loss, family members of loved ones with hearing loss or hearing loss experts.
