Hearing Australia has been caring for Australians for over 70 years, helping thousands of children, adults, pensioners, veterans and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people connect with their loved ones every week.
With more than 450 audiologists, they offer services through tele-services, online, in home, in center and mobile services across 168 hearing centers and 11 mobile buses. Their goal is to offer world-leading hearing solutions to the community we serve.
They are a Contracted Service Provider under the Australian Government Hearing Services Program, and provide services such as hearing assessments, hearing aid fitting and ongoing follow up care.
One in six Australians currently have some form of hearing loss, representing around 3.6 million people or 14.5% of the population. Hearing loss is a common health issue in Australia and they believe that hearing checks can encourage early intervention and rehabilitation. Having a hearing check is a simple and painless way to learn about your hearing need, and what can be done to help.
The Hearing Bus is booked in at MALC for Monday 11 January 8.30am to 2.30 pm, and can screen any one over the age of 18 years, this is a free service.
