The charity Action on Hearing Loss Scotland have announced dates over the next three months when hearing aid users, both existing and new, can drop in for help and support.

The support will be available between 11am and 1pm at Brodick Library on Wednesday April 25, Wednesday May 23, and Wednesday June 27.

On these dates volunteers who have been trained by NHS audiology will provide batteries and replacing tubing for NHS hearing aid users as sharing information on issues relating to hearing loss. People will be shown how to get the most out of their hearing aid so that they can hear more clearly and follow conversations with family, friends and colleagues.

Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s Fiona Goodwin said: ‘We look forward to welcoming existing and new service users at our upcoming drop-ins. Hear to Help offers vital support for islanders – including assistive equipment which could make everyday life easier.’
