About this Event

1 in 6 people have a hearing loss in our Diocese. An increasing older population and longer life expectancy, mean that our church buildings need to be able to welcome and accommodate those

The morning will include:

A presentation on current services provided by NHS audiology, general knowledge about hearing loss and types of hearing aides.

we will then break for lunch (provided)

The afternoon will include learning:

a. checking the hearing aid is working

b. replacing and providing new batteries

c. re-tubing hearing aids

d. ear mould cleaning

e. hearing aid controls

f. information and signposting to other services and useful equipment

g. best practice for hygiene.

We will also talk you through how to order supplies and steps moving forward.

At the end of the day there will be an informal assessment to ensure Hearing Champions are confident what they have learnt.
