Bendigonians 18 years and over are being offered free hearing checks this week when the Australian Hearing bus visits.
The sessions are timed with the Victorian Seniors Festival, which in running across the state throughout October.
Australian Hearing Bendigo’s Natalie Betts said the festival was a great time for people to get their hearing in order.
“A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can’t hear,” she said.
The bus will be at the Bendigo Marketplace on Tuesday, October 10, from 9am to 4pm, at the southern entrance (37 Garsed Street, Bendigo).
It will also return to Bendigo on Thursday, October 12, from 9am to 4pm at the Lyttleton Terrace entrance to the Bendigo Library.
No appointment is necessary for adults and people concerned about their child’s hearing should speak to their general practitioner for a referral.
Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioners and most veterans. For full details visit www.hearing.com.au
