The Hearing Bus has set the scene for very popular community events at many shopping centres throughout Australia and will be visiting Jackson Court on Friday 2nd June from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm.
Hearing loss is a significant health issue in the community, affecting an estimated 1 in 6 Australians. Getting your hearing checked is a simple and painless way to learn more about your hearing, and what can be done to help.
The Australian Hearing Bus is an excellent way of providing this service. This mobile hearing service has provided over 28,000 free hearing checks in communities across Australia since it first launched in 2009.
Formed in 1947 to help veterans from World War Two and children affected by the rubella epidemic of that decade, Australian Hearing has been meeting people’s hearing health needs for 69 years. We are the largest government-funded provider of hearing services to the community and are supported by our research division: the world-renowned National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL). I’ve attached a document that provides some further information regarding our services.
About the free hearing screening sessions:
The Bus has been specially designed to allow us to provide the free hearing checks on the Bus. We also provide information on a range of common hearing issues and visitors can view a display of hearing devices, including headsets for watching TV, alert systems for doorbells, and telephones designed to assist people with hearing loss.
