THE Australian Hearing bus is stopping by Belmont to offer free hearing checks and raise hearing health awareness, to locals in the community.
The bus will be at Ruth Faulkner Public Library on December 11, Bunnings Belmont on December 13 and Belmont Forum on December 19 between 9am and 3pm during all three days.
Australian Hearing Perth manager Kirsten White said because age-related hearing loss developed gradually over time, it was common for people to be unaware their hearing was diminishing.
“A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear,” she said.
“Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take in regards to your hearing.”
As well as having a hearing check, visitors to the bus can find information on a range of common hearing issues and view a display of easy-to-use hearing devices for around the home, which included headsets for watching the TV and alert systems for doorbells.
Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioners and most veterans.
