THE Australian Hearing bus will stop by Belmont and Victoria Park next week to offer free hearing checks and to raise hearing health awareness.
The bus will be at The Park Centre on Monday, May 7, Ruth Faulkner Public Library on Tuesday, May 8 and Bunnings Belmont on May 10 between 9.30am-2.30pm on all three days.
Australian Hearing Victoria Park manager Kirsten White said that because age-related hearing loss developed gradually over time, it was common for people 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.”
People who already wear hearing aids are also encouraged to come along and chat to the team to talk about their devices and general hearing health.
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.
No appointment is necessary.
