The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

A PUR­POSE-built “hear­ing bus” will visit New Nor­folk to­day to of­fer free hear­ing checks and raise hear­ing health aware­ness in the Der­went Val­ley.

The bus is trav­el­ling around Tas­ma­nia for the first time in the lead-up to Se­niors Week next month and will stop at the Wool­worths carpark to­day be­tween 9.30am and 12.30pm.

Man­ager at Aus­tralian Hear­ing Glenorchy Edgar Rin­con said the bus tour was a great way for peo­ple to check their hear­ing health.

“A hear­ing check is a quick and easy way to mea­sure the sounds you can and can’t hear,” Mr Rin­con said. “Our team will also be on hand to guide visi­tors through the next steps needed in re­gards to man­ag­ing a hear­ing loss.”

About 60 per cent of Aus­tralians over 60 suf­fer from some form of hear­ing loss with the Aus­tralian Hear­ing’s mo­bile bus tour pro­vid­ing more than 35,000 free hear­ing checks since its launch in 2009.
