FHN, RAMP Forming Hearing Loss Support Group

Freeport, Illinois — FHN and RAMP are working together to provide a support group for anyone with a hearing loss (and his or her family members/caregivers). An open house for all interested persons will be held Wednesday, Jan. 25.

The group is open to anyone with any type of hearing loss, parents of children with hearing loss, and/or peers and caregivers of someone with hearing loss. There is no charge to attend. No RSVP is necessary for the open house, and it is a come-and-go-as-you-are-able event running from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in the lower level conference room of FHN Memorial Hospital, 1045 W. Stephenson Street in Freeport.

Organizers will be gathering feedback on topics to discuss, when to meet, and more at the open house. If you are unable to attend, but interested in the group, please contact Samuel Carriger via email at scarriger@rampcil.org.

RAMP has an intimate understanding of the needs and solutions to advance the lives of people with disabilities. We have this understanding because the majority of our staff and board of directors have a disability. RAMP is a group of determined and caring individuals prepared to arm consumers with the tools and expectations necessary for them to guide their life now and in the future. A person with a disability who learns to navigate through daily activities in concert with their disability is free to pursue all possibilities of life. Learn more at www.rampcil.org.
