Research shows today’s older Australians are healthier and more active than their peers of 25 years ago.
However, maintaining hearing health isn’t a priority, with people waiting an average of seven years to take a hearing check.
A healthy lifestyle is one where you hear well and stay in touch with the people and community you love.
Hearing loss happens gradually so it can sneak up on us - usually friends and family notice first before you do.
Keeping up to date with your hearing is vital if you want to contribute fully to your community.
All Australians should make hearing a health priority, and a hearing check is an easy way to test where your hearing is.
Australian Hearing Launceston Manager Trent McHugh says “Australian Hearing is here to help you with all of your hearing needs.
“We have the latest generation of technology - the high-tech Signia Nx range – which helps users enjoy sounds like never before with state-of-the-art technology.
“The new Signia Nx range allows you to experience crystal clear sounds, even in noisy environments,” he explains.
“Maintaining good hearing is important for living a happy and healthy life, but hearing loss can make social situations difficult.
“One of our experts will be able to help you with all your hearing needs. The sooner you seek help the better your hearing will be.
“An Australian Hearing Specialist can help find the best, individual hearing solution, whether that be a hearing aid or headphones for the TV.
Eligible clients can also trial hearing aids, to test them at home or when you’re out and about, and hear for yourself the natural difference they make.”
The Nx hearing aids are comfortable and compact, with small and streamlined behind-the-ear models.
They offer easy connectivity by streaming phone calls and music, and the Streamline TV transmitter streams TV to your hearing aids through Bluetooth.
“If you are concerned about you or your loved ones hearing get in touch with us,” says Trent.
