The Australian Hearing bus is stopping in Parkes on 23rd September from 10am to 3pm in Clarinda Street to offer free hearing checks and raise hearing health awareness. 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. Janet Chapparo, Manager at Australian Hearing Orange, said because age-related hearing loss develops gradually over time, it is common for people to be unaware their hearing is 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,” said Janet. No appointment is necessary. Australian Hearing will provide hearing checks to any interested adults who visit the bus on the day.
