Forrestfield: hear the call for free ear checks

STOP off for a free hearing check this month when the Australian Hearing Bus pulls into Forrestfield.

The mobile hearing service has provided more than 40,000 hearing tests across Australia since the first bus launched in 2009.

Hearing loss is prevalent among older people, with those aged 60 or more suffering from some form of hearing loss.

Visitors to the bus can learn about hearing issues and see a display of easy-to-use hearing devices.

The range includes headsets for watching the TV and alert systems for doorbells.

Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioners and most veterans. . Call 131 797 or visit www.hearing.com.au.
