Af­ford­able hear­ing gets bet­ter

Central Leader - - HEALTH & BEAUTY -

Is hear­ing loss stop­ping you from do­ing the things you love in life and hav­ing an ef­fect on your self con­fi­dence?

De­spite be­ing a com­mon prob­lem, es­pe­cially as we grow older, many suf­fer­ers de­lay seek­ing help, ac­cord­ing to au­di­ol­o­gist Shirley-Anne Hodgson.

Shirley-Anne has re­cently joined A1 Hear­ing, which has clin­ics in Pa­p­a­toe­toe and North Shore and is now open­ing in Do­min­ion Rd.

Shirley-Anne, a fully qual­i­fied au­di­ol­o­gist with more than 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence, has a Mas­ters in Au­di­ol­ogy.

She ran her own clinic in Orakei for 11 years be­fore de­cid­ing to move away from the busi­ness world so that she can con­cen­trate on what she en­joys most; help­ing peo­ple to hear bet­ter.

She is able to pro­vide ACC, War Pen­sions and Hear­ing Aid Sub­sidy ser­vices.

Shirley-Anne says: ‘‘In my over 30 years work­ing as an au­di­ol­o­gist I have been priv­i­leged to be part of this rapidly ad­vanc­ing field. The last few years in par­tic­u­lar has her­alded a new era in hear­ing care, with a huge ad­vance in the ap­pli­ca­tion of dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy for peo­ple who suf­fer hear­ing loss. The ben­e­fit of th­ese dis­creet yet pow­er­ful hear­ing aids is that they en­able peo­ple to hear more clearly with­out dis­tor­tion, an­noy­ing back­ground noise or the un­com­fort­able high pitched squeal­ing as­so­ci­ated with past hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy.’’

A1 Hear­ing is a fam­ily-owned au­di­ol­ogy prac­tice which has been op­er­at­ing for 15 years.

The new Do­min­ion Rd clinic which opens in Au­gust con­tin­ues its phi­los­o­phy of pro­vid­ing lo­cals with an af­ford­able so­lu­tion to their hear­ing prob­lems.

With prices start­ing from just $650 hear­ing aids are not as ex­pen­sive as many might think.

There have been sev­eral new lines of bud­get-priced hear­ing aid tech­nol­ogy re­leased which have fea­tures and ben­e­fits pre­vi­ously only avail­able in the mid-range prices.

A1 Hear­ing is pleased to be able to of­fer some of th­ese new hear­ing aids to pa­tients at an af­ford­able price.

If you’ve no­ticed your hear­ing di­min­ish­ing, Shirley-Anne ad­vises that the ear­lier you have it checked the bet­ter, even if you think the prob­lem is mi­nor.

A1 Hear­ing Do­min­ion Rd is cur­rently of­fer­ing a free one-hour com­pre­hen­sive hear­ing test un­til the end of De­cem­ber.

Sim­ply con­tact 0800 A1HEAR or email info@a1­hear­ing.co.nz.
