Causes of hearing loss, prevention, support and hearing solutions, will be the highlights of a series of activities organised The Hearing Care Centre to mark World Hearing Day.
Our team have organised an informative webinar, are helping to promote a virtual concert and have put together an information pack, all with the aim of raising awareness around hearing loss and the importance of early diagnosis.
This year’s World Hearing Day event coincides with the launch of the World Health Organisation’s very first World Report on Hearing, presenting a global call for action for people to address their hearing loss.
Clinical Lead Audiologist Simon Myhill at The Hearing Care Centre said “One in six people in the UK experience some level of hearing loss, but more worryingly is that less than a third of people who could benefit from wearing hearing aids actually have them*.
“We believe that no one should have to live with untreated hearing loss and if we are able to encourage at least one person to seek help off the back of our activities, then it would have been worth it.”
The Hearing Care Centre’s webinar titled “An introduction to hearing loss: advice, support and solutions” is free to attend and takes place over Zoom on March 3rd at 3.30pm. Simon will talk attendees through how we hear, how to identify hearing loss, what its like to have a hearing test, hearing solutions and what help there is available locally.
Later the same day at 6pm, hearing aid manufacturer ReSound, is hosting a virtual concert with acclaimed local artist Sivu. James Page is a singer-songwriter living in Cambridge and performs under the name ‘Sivu’. His life has recently been turned around after being fitted with hearing aids and he is now in a position to produce the music he loves once again.
For those simply looking for more information on hearing loss and hearing solutions, The Hearing Care Centre has put together an information pack which is free to all.
