People who are profoundly deaf can use some equipment to help them with their daily lives.
- Smoke alarms
- Flashing door bells
- Alert pager systems linked to baby monitors
- Door alert systems
- Telephone amplifiers
Your local council will have a service where they can loan equipment or they can help you get the equipment you need. Not all councils are the same but you need to ask – these are the links to the different council’s equipment website pages in the North East.
