Hearing Week Editorial for Prime Magazine 2018
Our world is a noisy one and our ears take a battering. Every day we are exposed to the likes of loud coffee machines, thumping music in cafes, gyms and shops, industrial sounds, noisy cars and motorbikes, iPods, lawn mowers, and so much more. So its little wonder that more and more New Zealanders are presenting with some form of noise induced hearing loss.
Hearing Week was set up in addition to Deaf Awareness Week, which happens in September, and aims to highlight the fact that hearing impaired people have different needs to Deaf people,”
During Hearing Week, the Hamilton Hearing Association is encouraging the public to take advantage of free hearing tests on offer at the association’s rooms. “Just give us a call to make an appointment.” We can also give your hearing aids a general clean and dry on our UltraVac machine.
The public can also make an appointment to try the hearing assisted devices on display at the association’s rooms.
Just as we protect our skin from harmful UV rays with sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and protective clothing, so too should we protect our hearing with the use of ear plugs or ear muffs when appropriate.
To make an appointment for a free hearing test or to try out the assisted devices, phone Hamilton Hearing Association on 07 852 5725, email: zn.oc1544491312.artx1544491312@gnir1544491312aehma1544491312h1544491312
