A charity is encouraging older people in the north-east to make the most of their hearing aids.
Action on Hearing Loss Scotland is encouraging people to get their hearing checked, and if necessary, make a GP appointment to get a referral for a hearing test by an audiologist.
The charity’s Hear to Inform and Connect service, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, is holding information events in Aberdeen libraries.
It is at Kaimhill Library, Pitmedden Terrace, on Monday between 10am and noon, and Airyhall Library, Springfield Road, on Monday from 1-3pm.
Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s Julie Ringsell said: “We want to reassure many older Aberdeen residents that getting your hearing checked really is a straightforward process.
“We would also like to inform them of the benefits which hearing aids bring for people who have their deafness diagnosed as early as possible.”
