As part of their Hear to Inform and Connect service, Action on Hearing Loss Scotland is encouraging older people in the Falkirk area to get their hearing checked so that they can start benefiting from using hearing aids to hear more clearly in everyday life.
Staff and volunteers are running a hearing check and information session on Thursday 3rd May, 11am – 3pm at the Later Life Information Centre, 25 Upper New Market Street, Falkirk, FK1 1JH.
Julie Ringsell, from Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, said, “We want to reassure older Falkirk residents that getting your hearing checked is easy, and that hearing aids can greatly benefit people who have their deafness diagnosed as early as possible.
“We want to ensure that more people in the town are fully aware about the process of getting fitted with hearing aids programmed to meet their individual needs, so that they can become better informed to make decisions about managing their hearing loss and be able to stay connected with family, friends and neighbours.”
Vivienne Malcolm from Later Life Information Centre said, “We encourage the many older local residents who attend the Centre to get their hearing checked on Thursday 3rd May and speak with Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s representatives to become fully informed about the range of support, technology and equipment that is available to help people with hearing loss.”
