A char­ity is en­cour­ag­ing older peo­ple in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang who have hear­ing loss to start ben­e­fit­ing from us­ing hear­ing aids.

Ac­tion on Hear­ing Loss Scot­land is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to get their hear­ing checked and, if nec­es­sary, make a GP ap­point­ment to get a re­fer­ral for a thor­ough hear­ing test by an au­di­ol­o­gist.

The char­ity’s Hear to In­form and Con­nect ser­vice, funded by the Big Lot­tery Fund, is hold­ing in­for­ma­tion events in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang li­braries on the fol­low­ing dates: Ruther­glen Li­brary, 163 Main Street from 10am -12.30pm on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 16 and Tues­day, Novem­ber 6 and Cam­bus­lang Li­brary, 27 Main Street, Cam­bus­lang on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 16 from 1.30pm un­til 3.30pm.

Ac­tion on Hear­ing Loss Scot­land’s Malaika Rose said: “We want to re­as­sure many older Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents that get­ting your hear­ing checked re­ally is a straight for­ward process and in­form them of the ben­e­fits which hear­ing aids bring for peo­ple who have their deaf­ness di­ag­nosed as early as pos­si­ble.

“We want to en­sure that more lo­cal peo­ple are fully aware about the process of get­ting fit­ted with hear­ing aids pro­grammed to meet their in­di­vid­ual needs, so that they can be­come bet­ter in­formed to make de­ci­sions about man­ag­ing their hear­ing loss and be able to stay con­nected with fam­ily, friends and neigh­bours.”
