Hearing awareness week – August 20-27 2017
Hearing awareness week is on the last week of August. Organised by the Deafness Forum of Australia, this year’s initiative will take place from 20 to 26 August 2017 and aims to highlight the issues faced by people with hearing loss.
Early signs of hearing loss include; mishearing words, regularly asking people to repeat what they said and having difficulty hearing even in very low background noise.
If you are over 50 years of age or have been exposed to loud noise at work or recreationally then you should have your hearing checked. For Hearing awareness week, we are offering a FREE 15 min hearing screening at our Fitzroy hearing centre. Please call us on 1300 761 021 to arrange your appointment. Please mention that it’s a free screening for Hearing Awareness Week when you call.
