"Meanwhile, word had spread that I knew how to install hearing
loops in homes as a hobby. So for many years, I helped others
install and enjoy hearing loops. To date, I've helped put loops
in more than 350 homes. It goes without saying that home
hearing loops may have saved many a marriage."

In that part of the house, I can use
the single loop, regardless of which
of the two rooms I'm in.
For anyone who might feel
adventuresome enough to install a
loop in their own home, there are
44

many websites that offer easy-tofollow instructions and tips. For
example, if a room has carpeting,
you can easily install a wire under it.
Just lift the carpet off the tack strips
around the room, place the wire

Looping in Whatcom
County, Washington

My wife Linda and I moved
back to Washington state in
August 2018. We're hoping to
continue to help others with
hearing loss live better.
In fact, I have big goals
in mind for hearing loops in
Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
I've joined the HLAA
Whatcom County Chapter,
as well as the Burlington
Cochlear Community Chapter
of Cochlear Americas, a
support group. In addition,
I'm a member of the Skagit
County Accessible Community
Advisory Committee, where I
focus on promoting hearing
loops and advising people on
installations.
Cheri Perazzoli, director
of advocacy for the HLAA
Washington State Association
and founder of the "Let's Loop
Seattle" initiative, is guiding
the creation of the "Let's
Loop Northwest Washington"
campaign.
Our loop team participates
in health fairs, where we install
temporary hearing loops and
give demonstrations. We also
make loop receivers with
telecoils available so people
who don't yet have hearing aids
or cochlear implants can put on
headphones and hear the same
high-quality sound that those of
us with telecoils do. We provide
loop demonstrations at other
venues as well, upon request.
