    Help in Hearing Quiz Night Success

    As part of National Deaf Awareness Week, on May 15th Help in Hearing held their first ever Charity Quiz Night at the Emperor in Farnham Common. The event was a great success, raising £285 for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

    We’re thrilled to receive our certificate from Hearing Dogs for Deaf People for our donation of £285.00, raised by everyone who attended our Quiz evening – thanks to all who took part.

     

    Another Quiz Night is being planned for the Autumn, once again for Hearing Dogs.

    Help in Hearing’s Selma Becker commented: “We were thrilled with the turn out. It was a fun evening of brain teasing trivia and we were very proud of our fundraising efforts. It was also a lovely way to meet some new local people.”

    The winning team, aptly named Dog-Eared, were presented with a Fortnum & Mason hamper that they subsequently donated to another Hearing Dogs event.

    Here are some photos from the evening:

  • When should you get your hearing checked

    When should I get my hearing checked?

    Our hearing is incredibly important, from listening to your favourite song to hearing your loved one’s voice on the phone, it’s part of our lives. But unlike the dentist or the optician, many people don’t think to get their hearing checked until they notice a problem. At Help in Hearing, we believe that your hearing should be looked after as well as any other part of you. So when should you get your hearing checked?

    Age

    As we get older our hearing can start to get poorer but with regular checks and proper attention, it’s important to keep an eye on it. If you’re aged under 45 then a hearing check at least once every two years can be a great start to looking after your hearing proactively. If you’re over 60 then it’s worth having hearing checks more regularly, and our hearing specialists can advise you on how often is best for you to visit based on the results of your hearing check.

    Exposure to noise

    If you’re a professional working in a loud environment then it may be worth getting your hearing checked more regularly to make sure your hearing hasn’t been affected. Working in areas like live music, performance, construction and many others can leave you more at risk of hearing loss. Our expert audiologists can offer you a full consultation and understand the risks to hearing you have encountered. They may be able to suggest measures to protect your hearing in the future and will do a full hearing test to get a picture of how your hearing has been affected.

    You’re noticing hearing loss

    It’s always better to look after your hearing proactively but if you’ve been noticing issues with your hearing then it’s best to see an audiologist as soon as possible. If you’ve been having the television or the radio turned up so you can hear it and others think it’s loud, that might be a sign of hearing loss. If you sometimes miss words in conversations or you struggle hearing on the telephone, then this is another sign that you should get your hearing checked.

    When should you get your hearing checked?

    At Help in Hearing, we are dedicated to providing the very best hearing advice for you. If you think it’s time for you to have a hearing check-up, contact us to book now.
