Barbara Coffey was a highly regarded piano technician and tuner, repairing and tuning pianos in Southwest Virginia and West Virginia, including pianos for Virginia Tech, Bluefield College, Radford University and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Barbara earned a BA from Hollins University in 2009. As a gifted pianist and accordionist who played a clutch of other instruments including violin, Barbara’s musicianship graced several area bands, including Second Wynde and Jig or Not. She loved taking her camper to festivals and jamming with other appreciative musicians. She cherished the camaraderie of friends and brought her love of music to many jams. Barbara is survived by a symphony of relatives and friends. It is difficult to reflect all of her spirit; her energy and determination in every project; her love of nature and passion for conservation; her inherent love of travel and new adventures. Barbara’s passing leaves a hole in our hearts and lives.


A change proposed by the FDA last year is taking effect this fall and will be bringing hearing aids to more consumers by allowing them to be sold over-the-counter. This eliminates the need for medical exams and fittings that can make up two-thirds of the total cost of a prescription hearing aid. The FDA estimates that nearly 30 million adults suffer from hearing loss in our country, but many of these individuals do not use a hearing aid. Experts and the federal regulators behind this change hope that this will drive down prices and spur innovation when it comes to hearing aids and the technology they use.

This move by the FDA is aimed at making hearing aids more widely available without the added cost burden on the consumer of medical exams and fittings. These added expenses can make up two-thirds of the total cost of hearing aids, a cost that can be as high as $5000 for some individuals. Industry experts hope this move will bring down the cost of hearing aids for all consumers as well as removing a barrier to entry that currently exists in the requirement to see a specialist before receiving a hearing aid. 

While the availability of over-the-counter hearing aids can potentially diminish the role of audiologists and other specialists in diagnosing and treating hearing loss with prescription hearing aids, we must not forget the important role these specialists play in diagnosing, researching, and treating hearing loss and other related issues like processing disorders, dizziness, and trouble balancing. We reached out to Dr. Heather Dickey, a clinical audiologist at Roanoke Valley Speech and Hearing Center(RVSHC), for her thoughts on the bill and the changes it will bring.

It’s important to remember that ‘hearing’ is more involved than just the ear and potentially putting a hearing aid in the ear. The brain plays a huge role in processing the information it receives from the ear (both ‘hearing’ and balance signals). Central Auditory Processing evaluations are something that we offer here, and it is important for children and adults who have trouble hearing in noise, paying attention to auditory information, difficulty understanding speech/confusing different speech sounds and other difficulties to be evaluated.” 

This change will not eliminate the need for specialists like Dr. Heather Dickey, but it will force them to change and adapt their business. “We are also working to revise our pricing so that the cost of the hearing aids is just for the hearing aids themselves, not the hearing aids and services “bundled” together.” says Dr. Heather Dickey from RVSHC. “This will lower the price of hearing aids and give patients more transparency in what exactly they are paying for, and allow them control over what services they want.”

Hearing loss is not always preventable, but it can be in some cases. That’s why you will find free disposable foam ear plugs being given out at every 5 Points Music Sanctuary event. We also sell high fidelity reusable ear plugs and offer free high quality  hearing protection for our youngest guests. We want all of our guests to feel confident in their level of hearing protection so that they can continue to enjoy live music and join 5 Points for more events over the coming years.

So, if you suffer from hearing loss, issues with balance,  processing disorders, or simply just want to see how your hearing has held up over the years, please get in touch with your local hearing specialist to set up a hearing screening or test. RVSHC will be bringing their Mobile Hearing Test Unit to 5 Points Music Sanctuary shows this fall. This will give our guests the opportunity to get a free hearing screening while attending one of our many great events. Stay tuned for more information on future appearances from the RVSHC Mobile Hearing Test Unit.

The party’s not over when GO Fest wraps up on Friday, October 14—it’s just getting started at 5 Points Music Sanctuary in Downtown Roanoke. You don’t want to miss a night with Joslyn & the Sweet Compression. Joslyn honed her buttery-rich vocals in theater and has taken her act on the road with a tight band of musicians. Her performances evoke nostalgic memories of Motown and jazz.

The FDA has cleared the way for hearing aids to be sold over the counter, starting as soon as mid-October 2022. Following years of campaigning by lawmakers and advocates, a new category of over-the-counter hearing aids will make the devices affordable and accessible to millions who suffer from mild to moderate hearing loss. This is a huge win for the hearing impaired community, many of whom struggle to afford the high cost of being tested and fitted for hearing aids through a professional audiologist.

5 Points is hitting the road this month for Inclusion Festival, Floydfest, and a few Phish shows in between! Inclusion Festival is a new event for us and it benefits Accessible Festivals, a non-profit organization dedicated to making music and recreation accessible for all people. We are so excited to work with Accessible Festivals as their mission is so closely aligned with our own. 

“Inclusion Festival offers unique, immersive experiences that are often inaccessible to neurodiverse and disabled individuals, while also providing the general community with an all-encompassing educational and uplifting experience that demonstrates what is possible when communities embrace inclusion and accessibility.”

This event presents a great opportunity for 5 Points to spread the word about all of our work in the Roanoke area. It also gives us a chance to interact with and learn from both users of assistive technology and the specialists and designers behind different types of assistive technology. This gives us the necessary knowledge to ensure we keep 5 Points Music Sanctuary as inclusive and accessible as possible.

There will be 5 Points swag packages available to anyone who sees Tyler or Brandon at Inclusion Fest or Phish in Philly or Bethel! Extra prizes go to anyone who is also wearing 5 Points gear!

We look forward to seeing some friendly faces on the road before we return home for Floydfest.

 


In 2022, we are celebrating Helen Keller DeafBlind Awareness Week from June 26th to July 2nd. The focus this year is Diversity and Inclusion: Creativity and Innovation are built upon a diverse group of perspectives. Who better to help initiate that innovation than the DeafBlind community, a group of people whose lives are driven by the pursuit of change and innovation?

THE DEAF BLIND COMMUNITY HAS LEARNED TO SHIFT THEIR PERSPECTIVE.
HAVE YOU?

HKNC is the only national agency that provides information, referral, support and a Comprehensive Vocational and Rehabilitation Program exclusively to youths and adults who have a combined hearing and vision loss, to their families and the professionals who work with them. Thank you for your support.

How did DeafBlind Awareness Week come about?

This national advocacy campaign has been held each year since 1984 when then President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation in recognition of this special week.

We are happy to announce that Roanoke Valley Speech & Hearing Center (RVSHC) and their Mobile Hearing Test Unit will be joining us once again for our Night Lights Festival on July 2-3.   

A typical hearing screening can cost up to $100, but The Mobile Testing Unit allows RVSHC to conduct quick, on-site hearing screenings for FREE. At our last event over 50 free hearing screenings were conducted.

We believe in the value of regular hearing screenings as part of our mission to prevent hearing loss. So, whether you are concerned about potential hearing loss or just interested to see how well you can hear, come out to our Night Lights Festival and get a free hearing screening while you’re here.
