Get Help With Your Hearing
The Australian Government has created a national awareness campaign to encourage people with untreated or developing hearing loss (aged 50–70 years) to proactively manage their hearing health.
Hearing loss is common among Australians, with 1 in 6 people experiencing some form of difficulty hearing. Left untreated, hearing loss can affect mental and physical health and have a big impact on everyday life. That’s why it’s important to think about hearing in the same way you think about other aspects of your health.
Many Australians with hearing loss do not seek treatment but help is available. Having a hearing test can help to detect the early signs of hearing loss, so you can keep your hearing healthy for longer. Hearing aids are not the only treatment for hearing loss. Following a hearing check, a range of management options may be discussed including communication strategies, assistive listening devices and phone apps.
If you are concerned about your hearing, or the hearing of someone you love, book a hearing check today. Talk to your health professional or visit health.gov.au/hearing for more information.
