Hearing Loss Event

17/07/2017

All Ears

 

Monday 24 July
A free to attend ‘All Ears’ event will take place at the Education Centre, Southend University Hospital on Monday 24 July from 3pm to 5pm. Any person living with hearing loss can come along to this free event.
 
People who are new to NHS hearing aids will find it particularly beneficial, though established users, friends and carer’s are welcome to attend and find out more about the services and help available.
 
Hearing Help Essex, a registered not for profit charity assists people with acquired hearing loss. The keynote speaker will be from Sarabec, a leading hearing loss equipment supplier. The Essex County Fire and Rescue Service will also be present.
There are more than 11 million people in the UK with some degree of hearing loss and a quarter of a million people in Essex alone have some degree of hearing difficulty, which can come about for all sorts of reasons, making day-to-day communication far less easy.
 
Practical information, advice and guidance on how best to adjust to wearing NHS hearing aids and managing hearing loss will be made available. There will also be the opportunity to learn more about assistive equipment and the benefits of technology that can really help.
 
Places are limited and must be booked in advance.  It’s easy to make a reservation:  Call 01245 496347; Text 07950 406173; or Email: help@hearinghelpessex.org.uk.
Hearing Help Essex is committed in making a provision of support that will help people with hearing loss to make life easier. www.hearinghelpessex.org.uk
One final event will also be scheduled on Monday 23rd October.  Please indicate your attendance preference.
