Hear all about charity
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.”
