BUS TO GIVE HEARING AID
FREE CHECKS ON OFFER
PEOPLE who struggle to follow conversations in noisy places, have trouble hearing the phone ring or continually turn up the volume on the television can get a free hearing check.
Australian Hearing is offering free hearing checks in the area from today.
Australian Hearing Perth manager Jacqui Bell said about 60 per cent of Australians aged over 60 experienced some form of hearing loss.
“A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear,” she said.
“Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take in regards to your hearing.
“Not everyone who is experiencing problems needs a hearing aid.”
Visitors to The Hearing Bus, which arrives in East Victoria Park today and will move to Cloverdale tomorrow, will also have access to information on a range of common hearing issues and be able to display hearing devices for around the home.
These include headsets for watching the TV and alert systems for doorbells.
No appointments are necessary for The Hearing Bus, which will be at The Park Centre today and Belmont Civic Centre tomorrow from 8.30am to 5pm.
On March 12 from 9am to 1pm, Australian Hearing will also offer free hearing checks at Amcal Max Belmont inside the Belmont Forum Shopping Centre.
The checks are available to any interested adult.
Book your appointment by calling Amcal Max Belmont on 9277 7771.
Bookings are subject to availability.
