Re­con­nect with life at hi-tech hear­ing cen­tre

The Jewish Chronicle - - JC SPECIAL -

NE IN SIX people in the UK ex­pe­ri­ence some form of hear­ing loss — an es­ti­mated 3,136 people i n Gol der s Green alone. So of­ten hear­ing loss is just an ac­cepted part of get­ting older, but it re­ally should not be this way. Hear­ing care has moved on dra­mat­i­cally. Hear­ing aids these days range from stan­dard fit­tings to those that are prac­ti­cally in­vis­i­ble. Wire­less tech­nol­ogy can greatly im­prove your abil­ity to hear the tele­vi­sion and use the phone — and feel a part of so­ci­ety again.

“Gen­er­ally people tend to ig­nore or sim­ply ac­cept the fact that they ex­pe­ri­ence a loss in hear­ing and sim­ply get on with their lives. How­ever the longer the abil­ity to hear less goes un­treated the worse it be­comes,” ex­plains Nathan Gluck, an in­de­pen­dent hear­ing care specialist based in Gold­ers Green. “It is def­i­nitely worth get­ting checked out sooner rather than later, for your own ben­e­fit.”

Open days are be­ing held by Nathan Gluck on July 23 and 30, at his cen­tre in Went­worth Road, Gold­ers Green. There will be demon­stra­tions of hear­ing aids and other de­vices and ex­perts will be on hand to an­swer ques­tions. Home vis­its, demon­stra­tions and tests

are also avail­able.
