Selma Retiring

It is with sadness that we announce Selma’s retirement. She has worked in the hearing care industry for 35 years and took over Help in Hearing in Farnham Common nearly 20 years ago. She is now handing over the reins to her established team, who work across the three branches.

She comments: “I consider myself lucky and privileged to have worked in an environment that has brought so much work satisfaction. I can’t think of a better job than being able to help people improve their lifestyle with all aspects of hearing health issues and in the process of doing so, meeting THE most incredible individuals, my clients, many of whom have become friends over the years”.

Help in Hearing Audiologists

“My sincere thanks go to my amazing team, who, I have no doubt, will continue to give you the service and attention you have become accustomed to. In Farnham Common, my colleagues Wendy, Vikki and Nikki are looking forward to continuing your ongoing care. Many of you have met Kevin over the years and he will continue to work full-time in Marlow, while Bryan will continue to look after our Henley clients”

Selma's Grandchildren

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Selma for all her support as a wonderful boss and to also congratulate her on the arrival of her second grandchild, a beautiful baby boy called Theo born 3 days before her granddaughter Aurora’s first birthday!

Open Week Free Trials to hear better this Christmas!

As we head towards the celebratory season, we are holding an Open Week FROM 13th– 17th NOVEMBER – in our three branches to ensure your ears and hearing are in tip top condition. It’s time to make sure you don’t miss out on any festive family moments! Our recent free trial of Oticon Real aids was so successful that we are running it for a few more weeks, with a free hearing assessment, so that you still have time to test out these incredible new Real aids and be wearing them in time for Christmas. Call us here to book your appointment for Farnham Common and Marlow, or here for Henley.


Talks & Events

It has been a busy few weeks for our team. A special thank you goes to our Hearing Care Assistant and Earcare Practitioner Nikki who ran a popular ear health service at the Golden Years Free Dementia Support Day, hosted by the Bucks Older People Action Group (BOPAG) in High Wycombe; and she also carried out free hearing screening at the Hearing Link Information Day  held at the Hearing Dogs hub at the Grange, Saunderton.

Our audiologist Wendy Davies has also been busy giving talks, at the ARC Primary Care Network dementia support meetings in Marlow and Beaconsfield; and at Datchet WI, with another one booked at Hedgerley WI in November. The feedback from our audiology talks is always excellent. If you know of any local groups that would interested in a good speaker, please do email us here
