THE Australian Hearing bus is stopping in Victoria Park, Belmont and Karawara this week to offer free hearing checks and raise hearing health awareness with residents.
The bus will stop at Belmont Forum today (January 17), The Park Centre in East Victoria Park tomorrow and Waterford Plaza on Thursday.
Australian Hearing Perth manager Kirsten White said that 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. Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take in regards to your hearing,” she said.
“Not everyone who is experiencing problems hearing needs a hearing aid.
“Sometimes it’s just hearing the TV at normal volumes, hearing your doorbell, or hearing your friends on the phone that’s the problem.”
No appointment is necessary.
