World Hearing Day

March 3rd is World Hearing Day.

Around the world 466 million people are living with hearing loss (World Health Organisation figures).

1 in 3 adults over the age of 65 have a disabling hearing loss that limits their activities and participation in daily life.

At all life stages, communication and good hearing health connect us to each other, our communities, and the world.

For children good hearing is essential for speech development and education. Later in life hearing is important for employment and social inclusion.

If you have concerns regarding your hearing or family members please contact us for advice or to make an appointment.
