We at Envoy are so proud of the work we do to help people with hearing loss live their best lives. We can tell you all about how Esteem works and who it benefits, but only our recipients can really tell you what Esteem has meant to them.
Here are some of our favorite recipient stories from our patient threads:
“… [Esteem] made a big difference for me. I lived in Israel and during the war last summer , and I felt so much safer being able to hear in my sleep in case missile sirens would go off – which they did – and I was able to wake up and go to the shelter without fiddling with my hearing aids because of the Esteem.”
“I need to be able to hear overnight due to my daughter’s medical conditions, and the Esteem has made this possible.”
“… Hearing at night and in water are huge for me.”
“… I live in Texas, where we get severe weather, and being able to hear at night and be able to hear sirens when they go off is huge for me.”
“I’m a nurse and I can’t use a stethoscope with hearing aids in my ears – you have to take them out – which makes auscultating blood pressure and lung sounds quite challenging… I definitely wouldn’t still be able to continue on as a nurse without the Esteem.”
“Sports, especially water sports, are now much more enjoyable. I feel safer at the beach, where I never wore my aids even if I wasn’t planning to go in the water because of the sand. And the hotel [aspect] is HUGE…I had engaged the lock on the door that is the additional lock, and so the person who came to pound on the door to wake me up (since they knew that I was so hard of hearing) couldn’t open the door with the master key and ended up breaking the door jamb for something that essentially ended up being a false alarm.”
“I can sleep more restfully when overnight babysitting the grandkids [and] I can hear the burglar alarm if it gets set off at home. I’ve slept through [the alarm] when [I was] sick and accidentally someone set it off by opening the door before being able to get the code in soon enough before it went off. Another time, I ended up with a sheriff holding a gun on me when he was investigating the cause for the alarm and found no one but me in the backyard. The list goes on… [I can now hear] fire alarms at school…prior to having the Esteem, I could miss hearing bells and fire alarms even with my hearing aids on!”
