All ears - living with hearing loss

A free to attend All Ears, Living with Hearing Loss event will take place at Christ Church, Chelmsford on Thursday 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.

The event, delivered by Hearing Help Essex, a Chelmsford based charity, supports many people in Essex living with acquired hearing loss, to help alleviate the loneliness and isolation it can bring. Hearing loss impacts on people’s lives in all sorts of ways, with practical, social and emotional challenges being faced on a daily basis.
