Do you have trou­ble hear­ing?

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Healthy Communities -

Hear­ing loss af­fects 1 in 2 Aus­tralians over the age of 60. For most peo­ple, hear­ing loss is grad­ual and of­ten first de­tected by fam­ily and friends. The most common signs of hear­ing loss are: Be­ing able to hear peo­ple, but not clearly un­der­stand what they are say­ing; the feel­ing that peo­ple mum­ble; ask­ing peo­ple to re­peat them­selves and need­ing the TV vol­ume louder than oth­ers. The sooner you iden­tify a hear­ing loss the eas­ier it is to over­come it, be­fore the brain loses vi­tal con­nec­tions. Ig­nor­ing a hear­ing loss for too long can make it dif­fi­cult for the brain to adapt to hear­ing aids in the fu­ture. If you have signs of hear­ing loss, call Clar­ity Hear­ing Clinic on 9474 6644 to­day to take ad­van­tage of their free hear­ing check and hear­ing aid tri­als.
