Is hearing loss interrupting your relationship with an older person?
Pensioners may be eligible for free hearing tests and services under the Australian Governments OHS program.
Research indicates 1 in 6 Australians have a hearing loss and this ratio increases with age to about 60% of Australians over 65 with hearing loss. Also, the severity of hearing loss increase with age; hearing loss due to the wear and tear of age is called presbyacusis.
People with hearing loss can have difficulties with communication and experience break downs in conversation because they mishear words or don’t understand the speech at all. This can affect their relationships with loved ones.
