Australian Hearing is offering free hearing checks at its Penrith office, promoting hearing health awareness during the upcoming Hearing Awareness Week, which starts on Sunday, 19 August 2012. All visitors undertaking a hearing test will be given a voucher for refreshments at one of the local cafes.
Visitors can come and find information on a range of common hearing issues and view a display of easy-to-use hearing devices for around the home.
According to David Maple, Manager at Australian Hearing Penrith and Springwood, hearing loss is a prevalent issue in the community, with 60 per cent of Australians over 60 suffering from some form of hearing loss.
“The hearing checks are conducted by experts from Australian Hearing and take around 15 minutes to complete. Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take in regards to your hearing.”
People who visit can also learn more about products that make everyday hearing easier, such as headsets for watching the TV and alert systems for doorbells.
“Not everyone who is experiencing problems hearing needs a hearing aid. Sometimes it’s just hearing the TV at normal volumes, hearing your doorbell, or hearing your friends on the phone that’s the problem,” Mr Maple said.
“To book a hearing test at our Penrith office, simply call our friendly staff on 4720 3400.”
Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing services for eligible people, including pensioners and most veterans, at over 110 permanent centres and more than 330 visiting sites across Australia. For more information call 47203400 or visit www.hearing南京夜网.au
