Hearing loss affects 1 in 6 Australians and is one of the most common health problems in Australia today, affecting our work, social life and relationships.
While it can affect anyone at any stage of life, it’s more likely as we get older – over half of Australians aged 60-70 have a hearing loss.
If you’ve noticed issues with your hearing, Ramsay Pharmacy, in partnership with bloom™ hearing specialists, can arrange a free hearing check.
Signs of hearing loss
Hearing loss can start off small, and you might not connect the symptoms you’re experiencing with the beginning of hearing loss.
If you’re experiencing any of the below, it could be time to get your hearing checked:
- Difficulty hearing in noisy places
- Frequently asking people to repeat themselves
- Turning up the TV or radio so loud that others around you make mention of the volume
- Difficulty following conversations
- Often missing the doorbell or phone ringing
Why get a hearing check?
Hearing well can improve our communication with others, increase our awareness of our surroundings, keep us active and working longer and help with cognitive health. That’s why it’s so critical to protect it. As hearing health is a complex matter, a hearing check at Ramsay Pharmacy is a great opportunity to access expert advice at no cost.
What happens if I have hearing loss?
Your results will be discussed with you on the day of your hearing check and then sent to your email address or posted. To make it easier for you, the bloom™ hearing representative can book a time with a clinician to have a full hearing assessment at a clinic that is closest to you.
Can I have my child’s hearing checked at Ramsay Pharmacy?
Professionals use special techniques to test children, which require a certain environment. For these reasons, unfortunately we are not able to offer hearing checks to children instore.
