Action on Hearing Loss will hold a ‘Hear to Help’ drop in clinic in Carrickfergus on Wednesday, January 14 2015.
The session will run from 10.00am until 12.00 noon at the Town Hall.
Trained volunteers will be on hand to give free, practical information on cleaning and maintaining hearing aids. They can help to solve any problems people may be having with their devices and offer advice on how to manage hearing loss with confidence.
Hear to Help co-ordinator Laura Murphy said: “For many people who are given hearing aids, simple issues like comfort, maintenance and batteries can be major barriers to using them effectively. Our clinics will be a chance to find out how to use basic functions and carry out simple maintenance so you can hear much more clearly and comfortably.”
The initiative is a partnership with the Northern Health and Social Care Trust, which has trained Action on Hearing Loss volunteers to assist people who may have issues and to signpost them to the trust if they require hearing aid repairs or need their hearing aid programmed. The Northern Trust will also provide tubing and batteries for anyone who is experiencing difficulties.
