Most of us take our hearing for granted. However, some people are born with problems with their hearing and many of us begin to have hearing problems as we get older. By the age of 80, most of us will have some degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss can sometimes make it difficult to communicate with others and to live an independent and fulfilling life.
If you are hearing impaired, we want to support you so you can live as independently as possible. Whether you need a hearing aid or just some information and advice, there are plenty of services on offer to help make life easier.
