A free to attend All Ears, Living with Hearing Loss event will take place at Christ Church, Chelmsford on Tuesday 14th February from 2.30pm-4.30pm, inviting people with hearing loss and who wear NHS hearing aids to attend.
The informative session will cover living with and managing hearing loss, acclimatising to wearing hearing aids, lots of useful advice and tips, practical advice, assistive equipment, the latest advancements in technology and the wide range of support services that are available.
People who are new to NHS hearing aids will find it particularly beneficial, though established users, friends and carer’s are welcome to attend and find out more.
