Hearing loss effects 1 in 6 Australians, making it the second most prevalent health condition in Australia.

How do you know if you have hearing loss?

 

Ask yourself these questions... and answer them truthfully!

1. Do you have to turn the volume up on the television?

2. Do you hear, but not necessarily understand what others are saying?

3. Do you have trouble following conversations in noisy places?

4. Do you often ask people to repeat sentences?

5. Do you often accuse your partner of mumbling?

What to do?

If you’ve answered yes to one or more of the above questions, you may need to have a simple hearing check to find out what your hearing level really is.  Consult a hearing care professional in your town to organise this.

Where to go?

Hearing loss is not uncommon and nothing to be afraid of. We’re here to help you. The quicker you get an expert opinion, the better your quality of life will be.

How to improve your hearing?

Now that you have taken the first step, beautiful things start to happen. Together with your hearing care professional we are here to guide you on your journey to better hearing and to make sure you get what’s best for you.

 

      You talk.. we listen

 

On your first visit, you do the talking and we’ll do the listening! We want to hear about how your hearing has changed and understand the challenges you’re facing. 

Once we establish what you’re hearing, we can start defining what areas we need to focus on, and commit ourselves to finding the best solution for your hearing loss.

 

      Let’s work together!

 

We take things like your family, work and social life into consideration before deciding which hearing solution is right for you. It’s important for us to help you find a solution that’s going to successfully cater to you and your specific needs.

Did you know ...

The longer you wait to address your hearing, the more difficult it is to regain the hearing that you’ve lost. Addressing your hearing loss early will improve your physical health and mental wellbeing.

When we can’t hear the world around us, it’s natural to feel isolated and begin to withdraw from social activities. Hearing Loss can also affect your memory and concentration abilities.
