Be a good sport and hop aboard the hearing bus
With Hearing Awareness Week fast approaching, Australian Hearing is once again urging people to visit one of its 12 specially-fitted hearing buses roaming the country from 20-26 August, to see how their hearing is tracking. Manningham locals over 18 are invited for a free hearing check at the following places; no appointment is necessary.
Now in its third year and with more than 7,000 hearing checks completed, The Big Aussie Hearing Check is Australian Hearing’s national drive in support of Hearing Awareness Week that calls on Australians to have a yearly hearing check-up. Free hearing checks are offered in convenient community locations and Andrea Kanas at Australian Hearing Box Hill says this year’s theme celebrates seniors’ enjoyment of sports and activities locally available.
Andrea Kanas said, “Maintaining good hearing is about communication, which boosts confidence in social situations and allows people to fully participate in fitness and other activities they have always done – or to try something new.”
“A hearing check is one part of overall health monitoring and if a hearing loss is detected, we can advise next steps, suitable technology and provide ongoing support,” said Andrea Kanas
It is always better to know where your hearing is at and a quick hearing check is a wise move.
Celebrating 70 years’ of supporting Australians with hearing loss, Australian Hearing is the nation’s leading hearing specialist, researcher and largest provider of government-funded hearing services.
Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioners, veterans, children and young adults under 26, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over 50 and adults with complex hearing needs.
