AUSTRALIAN Hearing Glenorchy is celebrating Seniors Week in Tasmania by offering free hearing checks and advice on hearing wellness for Glenorchy citizens.

Seniors Week runs from 15 to 21 October across the state.

Local seniors are encouraged to seek out events as a reminder that no matter your age, it’s never too late to embrace your hearing health as an extension of your regular health and fitness regime.

Australian Hearing Glenorchy manager Edgar Rincon said Seniors Week was a great way to enjoy social activities.

“At Australian Hearing, we don’t want you to miss out on any opportunity to enjoy social activities and keep in touch with the people you love and all the things you love to do,” he said.

“During Seniors Week, we encourage seniors to be proactive about their hearing health and have a hearing check to make sure their hearing stays in great shape.”

Research reveals that today’s older Australians are generally healthier and more active than their peers 25 years ago.

However, maintaining hearing fitness isn’t a priority, with people waiting an average of seven years before taking a hearing check.

“The sooner you can address hearing loss the better,” Mr Rincon said.

“If people consider a hearing check as part of their general health check-ups, like testing their blood pressure or getting their eyes checked, the better the outcome will be for them.”

A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear.

The team at Australian Hearing Glenorchy will be on hand to guide you through the steps you may need to take in regard to hearing health.

With more than 70 years’ experience, Australian Hearing is here to help all Australians manage their hearing health, ensuring they stay connected with the world around them.
