CaptionCall is pleased to announce that as part of our affiliation with the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA), we will be participating in “Active Aging Week” again this year.  Every year ICAA dedicates a full week for promoting health and wellness among aging adults.  This year’s “Active Aging Week” theme is “Explore the Possibilities”.  We are all invited to take part in helping aging adults discover the many ways they can live longer, happier, healthier lives.

CaptionCall has designed a fun, one hour interactive presentation, called I just called to say…” that highlights the health benefits of treating hearing loss, followed by a demo of the CaptionCall phone and how to order it.  We would love to host the “I just called to say…” workshop at your business or community during “Active Aging Week”, or any other time.

We look forward to exploring the possibility of hosting a workshop with you!
