Hearing loss checks available

Sunshine Coast Audiologists.

Hearing difficulties in later life can seem inevitable, 65% of people aged over 65 experience hearing loss and the percentage increases with age.

Sunshine Coast Audiology are often asked “is my hearing normal for my age?”

A hearing loss is hearing loss, no matter what the person’s age! There is no requirement to put up with hearing and communication difficulties just because someone has reached a certain age. At Sunshine Coast Audiology they assure clients of a comprehensive assessment of their hearing, and ear health, to ensure any treatable ear conditions are resolved.

Potential consequences of untreated hearing loss can include increased mental load and listening effort, and difficulties following conversations. This can lead to fatigue, avoidance of social gatherings and feelings of depression and loneliness. Untreated hearing loss can also affect balance, increase the risk of falling, as well as increasing the risk of cognitive decline and dementia. Hearing loss doesn’t have to be disabling for the patient or their loved ones. The sooner help is sought for hearing difficulties, the easier and more successful the interventions can be.

Sunshine Coast Audiology is owned and operated by experienced audiologists who pride themselves in having their clients’ best interests at heart. They can advise on hearing and communication difficulties, tinnitus, hearing protection and also recommend, fit and adjust any hearing devices as necessary. As an accredited provider, eligible pensioners and veterans also have access to the Government’s Hearing Services Program, including annual hearing tests and free or subsidised hearing aids (if required).
