10 years of serving the Westside of Cincinnati

Christmas came early for
The Place for Better Hearing

Dr. Laurie DeWine, owner and audiologist at
The Place for Better Hearing, fits Betty Oelher, 89, of
Delhi Township with her free hearing aid.

The Place for Better Hearing celebrated its 10-year anniversary by giving away 10 hearing aids to 10 people with hearing loss. Friends or family members nominated the winners by writing letters stating why they deserved to win the free hearing aids.

“Hearing aid winners live all over the Cincinnati area. They are Mary Emmett, Patti Gibbs, Dennis Goldsberry, Lisa Ketteman, Betty Oehler, Philip Reid, Irma Roenker, Joan Queen, Alben Williams, and Joan Yates,” said Dr. Laurie DeWine, audiologist and owner of the Place for Better Hearing. Anne Burke, social worker at Hillebrand Home Health, selected the winners. Recipients of the 10 free hearing aids varied in age from 43 to 89 years of age.

Philip Reid, 60, of Westwood, said he noticed he had a hearing loss more than 35 years ago when he worked in woodworking and did not use ear protection.

“My mom and dad wrote the letter to nominate me,” Reid said. “It really surprised me. I’ll get to hear the birds again. I miss that tremendously. I can have the windows open and hear the birds again.”

Lisa Ketteman was nominated by her sister, Lynn Emmett. Emmett described her sister as the “most thoughtful and helpful person” she knows.
“Lisa loves her niece and nephews a lot, “ Emmett wrote in her nomination letter. “She cries when she can’t hear them whisper a secret in her ear.”
Kettemen, 52, lives in Green Township and has had hearing loss for over 15 years.

“It upsets me to be around people,” said Lisa Ketteman, of Green Township. “I can’t hear them or understand them. I know the new hearing aid will give me my life back and help me be around my family and friends again. Dr. DeWine and her staff have gone the extra steps to take care of me.”
Joan Queen, 42, of Ft. Thomas has had hearing loss all of her life. Her husband, Matt, nominated her. He compared her hearing loss to having to wear eyeglasses.

“The timing of all this has been perfect,” Joan Queen said. “I want to hug everyone here. This has been a wonderful Christmas gift.”
“Each of the 10 winners received free hearing evaluations,” DeWine said. She and Audiologist Stefanie Godbey selected the hearing aid style and level of technology that would best suit their lifestyles.

The Place for Better Hearing is locatd at 3302 Westbourne Drive, Cincinnati, 45248.
