MAC celebrates Victorian Seniors Festival 2015
2015 Victorian Seniors Festival will run throughout October across the state. The festival’s major Melbourne events are Celebration day at Federation Square (4 October 2015) and the Melbourne Festival Hub – 4-11 October 2015.
In its 33rd year, Victorian Seniors Festival is celebrating communities. The festival encourages Victorians to participate in a range of educational, social, cultural and healthy living activities. Seniors Festival provides an opportunity to bring together all Victorians, to celebrate the contributions seniors make within their communities. Melbourne Audiology Centre wants their community to make the most of the Seniors festival, so is encouraging locals to consider their hearing health and is offering free hearing checks.
Diane Smith from Melbourne Audiology Centre says; “We look forward to providing our local customers a chance to come in and talk about their hearing needs plus have a cup of tea and biscuit on us! Hearing health is important, especially for seniors who want to get the most out of their day and enjoy what life has to offer”.
“Technology is advancing all the time and at Melbourne Audiology we make sure we are at the forefront of that. We want people to get their energy for living back. We don’t want the lives and relationships of our community members to suffer, so it is important to do something immediately if you see any signs of hearing difficulty rather than watch and wait.” says Diane.
New technologies from hearing aid manufacturers like Oticon, aim to address the social implications for seniors by supplying discreet instruments; literally tiny ones that fit fully within the ear canal. And just as importantly, their hearing aids help the brain make sense of sound and reduce the mental fatigue associated with hearing loss.
