STOP off at the Australian Hearing bus for a free hearing check to find out more about hearing loss.

The blue and white bus will be outside Chidlow Pharmacy from 9.30am-2.30pm on Tuesday, June 5.

Australian Hearing manager Julie Faulkner said age-related hearing loss develops over time and it is common for people to be unaware their hearing is diminishing.

About 60 per cent of Australians over 60 suffer from some form of hearing loss.

“A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear,” she said.

Visitors to the bus can find information about common hearing issues and view a display of easy-to-use hearing devices for around the home, including headsets for TV and alert systems for doorbells.

Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people including pensioners and most veterans.
