Athens business to help hospice patients hear

Life seems to have a way of coming full circle. One action influences another, which in turn influences another, and so on until the chain of events gets back to where it started.
Bill Diles, a retired Athens audiologist, is a patient of Appalachian Community Hospice, which he said has been a great help to him and his wife, Mary. But hospice is also benefiting from a new program, the origins of which can to some degree be traced back to Diles’ decision some 60 years ago to be an audiologist, rather than an insurance salesman.
Diles Hearing Center, now owned by Diane McVey, has started a program that will recycle used hearing aids for use by hospice patients. It’s an idea that originated with Diles’ son, who followed in his father’s footsteps and is an audiologist in California.
