Af­ford­able hear­ing just got even 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 Shirley-Anne Hodg­son Au­di­ol­o­gist at A1 Hear­ing who have clin­ics in Pa­p­a­toe­toe, North Shore and Mt Eden.

Shirley-Anne is a fully qual­i­fied au­di­ol­o­gist with more than 30 years ex­pe­ri­ence, who 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.

‘‘Work­ing in the field of hear­ing care is both ex­cit­ing and chal­leng­ing,’’ says au­di­ol­o­gist Shirley-Anne Hodg­son. ‘‘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 aids.

With prices start­ing from just $500 hear­ing aids are not as ex­pen­sive as many peo­ple 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. We are re­ally pleased to be able to of­fer some of these new hear­ing aids to our pa­tients at an af­ford­able price.

A1 Hear­ing is a fam­ily-owned au­di­ol­ogy prac­tice which has been op­er­at­ing for 20 years in Pa­p­a­toe­toe and the Mt Eden clinic which opened in Au­gust con­tin­ues its phi­los­o­phy of pro­vid­ing lo­cals with an af­ford­able so­lu­tion to their hear­ing prob­lems.

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 only mi­nor.

And now’s the per­fect time to take ac­tion as A1 Hear­ing Mt Eden clinic is cur­rently of­fer­ing a free one-hour com­pre­hen­sive hear­ing test un­til the end of Fe­bru­ary.

You’ll find A1 Hear­ing’s Mt Eden clinic at 425A Do­min­ion Road, Mt Eden.
