Event description: The Effective Hearing Programme, run by Shropshire RCC in conjunction with NHS Audiology, is a one-day course. Your opportunities are at:
- Mayfair Community Centre from 10am – 4pm on 7th July 2015
- Whitchurch from 10am – 4pm on 13th July 2015
This event is open to anyone in the area who wears an NHS hearing aid. Useful tips, resources, encouragement, support and practical help will be shared and hearing aid users are also encouraged to bring a family member or friend with them as the course also covers communicating well with others. Refreshments are provided, although guests are asked to bring their own lunch.
A recent attendee commented: “[My] Hubby and I have had hearing aids for almost 20 years and yet today, we learned so much about aids and hearing loss and how to deal with different situations, it was unbelievable. The team were so friendly, down to earth, approachable, etc – they were fantastic. “
Later this year the course is also available in Telford, Shrewsbury, Wellington, Ludlow and Newport. Places must be pre-booked so please contact Shropshire RCC on 01743 342168 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register for a place.
