Hearing loss? We can help--

because we've been there.

ALDA Chicago is a group of people with various degrees of hearing loss. Some wear hearing aids or have cochlear implants, while others use neither.

Our mission is to provide support, advocacy, education and camaraderie for adults with hearing loss.

Our motto, based on our members' dedication to communicating with each other and engaging with the world, is "whatever works."

We had a very nice turnout for the bowling/dining social at Suburbanite Bowl in Westmont. There were quite a few bowlers but not all stayed to enjoy pizza from Zazzo's afterwards. Everyone had a great time. We wish more of you could have joined us. It was a lot of fun!

Despite the snowy weather and potential for icy roads, those pictured here got together for a post-holiday Meet-Up Lunch at Anyway's Restaurant in Oakbrook Terrace on Jan. 23rd. Everyone had a really nice time as is evident by all the smiling faces haha! Food was good, too. And look who was able to join us... yes, it's John G there way in the back, waving his hand high in the air (smile). We were so happy he was able to join us. It was sure great to see him. We wish more of you could have made it. We miss seeing you and hope you come to one of our gatherings soon.

Our members and their guests celebrated the holiday season at a party at Clara's in Woodridge on Dec. 10th. It was a wonderful gathering enjoyed by all. The restaurant was festively decorated and the food plentiful. Clara's again did not disappoint. Our white elephant grab bag was a lot of fun, too. Donna, our Social Chair, did a wonderful job of setting this up and personally made homemade centerpieces for each table as well as individual party favors for each of us to take home. She then topped off the event by singing several favorite carols for our added enjoyment. We only wish more of you could have joined us. We missed you very much!

Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful holiday season. See you in the new year!

The ALDA Chicago group at ALDAcon in San Diego, CA in mid-October this year. The smiles say it all!
