Cochlear Implant ‘Coffee Chat’ Support Group – April 22, 2017

This is a very active group that meets monthly. Led by Sonja Reid, a CI user herself, attendees participate in lively discussion on all matters related to hearing loss and in particular, cochlear implants. There is a wealth of information shared by all participants.

Anyone is welcome to attend regardless of your hearing status. Individuals considering a cochlear implant and especially new users attend to receive support and information. Seasoned users attend for camaraderie and information sharing.

It is a very casual and welcoming atmosphere with refreshments served in a fully accessible location with free parking. Meetings occur on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Meetings are held in the basement meeting area of the Deaf and Hear Alberta building at 63 Cornell Rd. NW.

Text 911 – Did you register yet?

T9-1-1 provides 9-1-1 call centres with the ability to converse with a deaf, deafened, hard of hearing or speech impaired (DHHSI) person during an emergency, using text messaging.

When a DHHSI person requires 9-1-1 services, they dial 9-1-1 on their cell phone. There is no need for them to speak, as the 9-1-1 dispatcher will receive an indicator that tells
them to communicate with the caller via text messaging. The 9-1-1 dispatcher then initiates text messaging with the caller to address the emergency.

A DHHSI person must register for T9-1-1 with their wireless service provider and must
have an eligible cell phone before being able to utilize this service. This includes the
ability to send and receive text messages.
