Action on Hearing Loss Scotland staff and volunteers are running a hearing check and information session at the Later Life Information Centre, 25 Upper New Market Street, Falkirk between 11am-3pm on Thursday, May 3.

Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s Julie Ringsell, said: “We want to reassure older Falkirk residents that getting your hearing checked is easy and hearing aids can greatly benefit people who have their deafness diagnosed as early as possible.

“We want to ensure that more people in the town are fully aware about the process of getting fitted with hearing aids programmed to meet their individual needs, so that they can become better informed to make decisions about managing their hearing loss and be able to stay connected with family, friends and neighbours.”
