Free Hearing Care Event in Harleston

ONE local business is holding a free hearing loss awareness event to encourage the residents of Harleston to prioritise their hearing health. Hearing loss affects 1 in 6 people in the UK and it takes 10 years on average before those who have noticed a loss in their hearing choose to seek help. Research has also proven that other than a reduced quality and experience of life, hearing loss can also lead to cognitive decline resulting in conditions such as depression and dementia.

The Hearing Care Centre, which is a family-run business with 26 centres across East Anglia, will hold a special Hearing Care Day at Jeffrey &

Karen Finch, founder and

lead audiologist at The Hearing Care Centre said “Hearing loss is a real issue in the UK. More often than not it's a gradual process, it's not always easy to tell if you're losing your hearing. Therefore it is so important to have your hearing assessed on a regular basis to intervene at the earliest stage possible.” To find out more information or to book an appointment, call The Hearing Care Centre on 01473 230330 or visit harlestonopenday
