Need Timer with a loud alarm

My hearing is starting to go. So I need a loud alarm [timer] to go around my neck. I have tried different ones,but none loud enough to help my needs,for a loud alarm. Any help where to find one would be appreciated. Thank You

Harris Communications - products for deaf, deafness, hard of hearing, hearing impaired, and hearing loss. Products for Deaf People, Hard of Hearing People, Sign Language Books

This company has many products for the hard of hearing as well as for the Deaf. I've gotten some of my interpreting books from them and I know a lot of my Deaf acquaintances get products from them as well. They are very good about returns and service too.

Do you happen to have a cell phone? Most have some kind of alarm clock function and you can set the phone to vibrate and then put it in your pocket.

Merry Christmas !!! No one up except me. For the last 20 years or more I have used a GRALAB darkroom timer in my kitchen . It has a very LOUD alarm , It is about 9 inches ( 23 cm ) high . You just move the timer dial with your finger. We are on a well so it is also used to water the garden , or ,if you are outside you still hear it go off .
Just thinking that I probably can't cook steak without it , one minute sear on each side ,three minutes in the oven, perfect every time ( beats my grill or bbq all to hell ). If you want to you can used it to plug in to for a timed plug .
I had one for my darkroom but see them still for sale. Regards Gage
