Mounties Takes Action on Hearing Loss

12 Aug 2016

Hearing is vital, and many Australians are struggling to hear the world around them. On average, most people wait at least eight years to take action on their hearing loss.

To combat this, Mounties and Hearing Australia have teamed up to provide senior members with free hearing checks on Monday, 22 August.

Seniors can head to Mounties Elizabeth Room, between 10am and 3pm to see an expert consultant about their hearing, and receive a free check.

This event coincides with Hearing Awareness Week, which occurs each year in the last week of August (Sunday, 21 August until Sunday, 28 August).

As hearing is a foundation sense for communication, and the most common way for humans to communicate, Mounties takes this very seriously and urges its senior members to take advantage of the free checks and ensure their hearing is in order.

According to Australian Hearing, hearing loss increases as people get older, as it is part of the natural ageing process. Over half the population aged between 60 and 70 having a hearing loss.

This increases to more than 70 per cent of those over the age of 70, and 80 percent of those over the age of 80.

Australian Hearing is the nation’s leading hearing specialist and largest provider of Government funded hearing services.
