The Australian Hearing Bus is returning to Bega’s Zingel Place car park on Tuesday, September 12, offering free hearing checks between 9am and 1pm.
Hearing loss is a prevalent issue in the community, with around 60 per cent of Australians over 60 suffering 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. The 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. This includes headsets for watching the TV and alert systems for doorbells.
No appointment is necessary. Australian Hearing will provide hearing checks to any interested adults who visit the bus on the day.
