Alona Troy, Community Resource Officer reports:
The next clinic which offers services for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing will be held on Monday 5th September 2016 next, from 10:00am to 1:00pm in St Mary’s Health Centre, Thurles, Co Tipperary.
This is a free service where you can acquire information regarding hearing loss; guidelines for good communication and information on available equipment for your home, which will help you to hear your doorbell, phone, smoke alarm and television.
They also provide information on Irish Sign Language, Tinnitus and Lip-reading; so do come in and have a chat, with no need for an appointment.
HSE hearing aid tubing can be changed and batteries for all hearing aids can be purchased for €2 for a pack of 6. Family members and local agencies are also welcome to seek advice.
Note: They do not service, fit or issue hearing aids at this clinic.
