Hear­ing bus in town

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE Aus­tralian Hear­ing bus is stop­ping in Vic­to­ria Park, Belmont and Karawara this week to of­fer free hear­ing checks and raise hear­ing health aware­ness with res­i­dents.

The bus will stop at Belmont Fo­rum to­day (Jan­uary 17), The Park Cen­tre in East Vic­to­ria Park to­mor­row and Water­ford Plaza on Thurs­day.

Aus­tralian Hear­ing Perth man­ager Kirsten White said that be­cause age-re­lated hear­ing loss de­vel­oped grad­u­ally over time, it was com­mon for peo­ple to be un­aware their hear­ing was di­min­ish­ing.

“A hear­ing check is a quick and easy way to mea­sure the sounds you can and can’t hear. Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take in re­gards to your hear­ing,” she said.

“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.”

No ap­point­ment is nec­es­sary.
