  • Hearing health event at the Marlow Club

    Hearing health event – a review

    Our Hearing Health event at the Marlow Club earlier in October was a resounding success! Thank you to everyone who came along to learn about how to look after your hearing, a good number have subsequently booked in to see us to find out more. Also a big thank you to our guest speakers, Paul Lamb, Technical Director at Starkey for telling us all about artificial intelligence developments in hearing aids; and Roger Lewin, Managing Director, who talked about the wonderful work of the Starkey Foundation in giving the gift of hearing to people in need in more than 100 countries. Starkey was also represented by Sales Manager, Julie Adshead, who was at hand to discuss the intricacies and benefits of the new Livio aids, launched at the event.

    Nearly 30 people attended on the day and we were delighted that the Deputy Mayor, Bob Johnson, was also there to open the event. He was very keen to convey the message regarding the importance of correcting hearing loss to avoid social isolation and help with dementia. This was further talked about by our audiologist Kevin Jeffery in his presentation on how correcting hearing loss can play a significant role in combating cognitive decline.

    Thank you also to the Marlow Club for hosting the event and serving us a fantastic health buffet, enjoyed by all.

  • Gilly and Wendy at the Stoke Poges Dog Show

    Help in Hearing at Stoke Poges Dog Show

    Wendy and Gilly had a great time on Saturday sharing a stall with Hearing Dogs for Deaf People at the Stoke Poges Dog Show at their Village Fete. Help in Hearing sponsored the dog show, which was one of the highlights at the annual fete. There was also a car show, Fancy Dress and Irish dancing. The event was very well attended and the sun just about shone through, although it was so windy that a couple of gazebos went flying at the set-up stage!

    The six categories at the Dog Show were Cutest Puppy, Golden Oldie, Waggiest Tail, Musical Sits, Best Catch and the Dog the judge would most like to take home.

    Alfie was there with Gilly and he came away with two Help in Hearing Rosettes. Fairly judged by the Hearing Dogs volunteers, Alfie came 2nd in the Golden Oldies at the grand age of 11 years and he came 3rd in Musical Sits, as Gilly’s husband disco danced around the arena and encouraged Alfie to sit with quite a few treats. If Kevin had been there, we think Alfie would also have done better in the waggiest tail category!

    Audio Service – Exclusive to Independents

    We are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer Audio Service, a German based manufacturer available exclusively in the UK through independent hearing consultants. Their latest product innovations are considered “audiological all-rounders in the modern hearing aid world”.

    Audio Service Sun G5 Hearing Aid

    Heading up the portfolio, the Sun G5 delivers outstanding hearing quality and excellent speech intelligibility, even under difficult acoustic conditions, offering a natural hearing experience. The constant communication between your left and right hearing aids means your world now sounds balanced and comfortable. During conversations, your hearing aids work together to evaluate all of the signals received and thus ensure a spatial hearing impression – maintaining the focus on the main person you’re talking to.

    Bluetooth Technology

    The best entertainment starts in your ear: telephone calls, music and navigation instructions are transformed into a true hearing experience by the combination of your iPhone and the G5 Bluetooth® technology. The signals are streamed directly to your hearing system – a particularly convenient solution for you. In addition, the Smart Transmitter 2.4 connects your Sun G5 to your TV or HiFi system quickly and simply – all without the need for any other devices. 

    Smart Direct App

    In collaboration with your iPhone, the Smart Direct app makes your hearing experience more convenient than ever before. Once installed, the app transforms the Sun G5 into stereo headphones. Telephone calls and streamed music are forwarded from your iPhone directly on to the hearing aids – without any additional accessories. In addition, the hearing program, volume, and alerts can all be set and customised easily using the Smart Direct app. For optimisation of your hearing, the app creates a personalised environment profile for you, providing us and you with information on your daily hearing performance.

    Audio Service open days – come along and take a free trial!

    Come along to our Audio Service open days on 7th February (Marlow) and 8th February (Farnham Common) to learn more about these hearing aids, available exclusively through independent hearing consultants. We will have an Audio Service expert on hand and you will have the opportunity to take a free, two-week trial of the new Audio Service hearing aids.

  • Tinnitus Support Group

    Tinnitus Support Group for Marlow & Farnham Common – Launch Event

    Tinnitus Support Group Launch Event – Wednesday 10th January, 2018
    Venue – Help in Hearing, Marlow Hearing Clinic, Glade Road, Marlow
    Time – 6:30pm – 8:30pm

    Guest Speakers:

    David Stockdale, Chief Executive, British Tinnitus Association

    Jono Heale, Director, Advanced Communication Solutions

    It is estimated that Tinnitus effects 250 million people worldwide, with over 6 million estimated to suffer in the UK. If you are suffering from tinnitus you are not alone. All too often people are told there is nothing one can do about the condition but this is not the case. At Help in Hearing we offer full tinnitus assessments and a structured tinnitus counselling programme. Says audiologist Selma Becker: “We use various techniques and devices to help sufferers manage and live with tinnitus including sound therapy and masking or aids which not only enhance hearing but offer sound relaxation.”

    Help in Hearing’s Practice Manager, Gilly Wright, is setting up a new support group for local people with tinnitus in Marlow and Farnham Common. A launch event featuring a talk by BTA Chief Executive David Stockdale and guest speaker Jono Heale will take place 6.30pm-8.30pm on Wednesday 10 January at Help In Hearing’s Marlow practice in Glade Road. Depending on demand, the meeting venue will alternate monthly between Marlow and Farnham Common.

    Gilly Wright says: “I am passionate about helping people with tinnitus and hearing problems. I am a tinnitus sufferer with Menieres Disease. Support groups can play such a fantastic role as you can feel so isolated. Sometimes friends and families aren’t able to understand how bad it can be. The plan is to initially hold evening meetings but I would be happy to consider Saturday mornings as an alternative if the interest is there.”

    Tinnitus can be a ringing, buzzing, hissing or roaring sound, and may be temporary or permanent. This noise in your ears or inside your head is unique to you. An estimated 80% of people who suffer from tinnitus also experience some degree of hearing loss, though they may be unaware of it. Tinnitus is a symptom that can be caused by many things, and can even begin for no apparent reason. But it can have a major impact, bringing stress, anxiety, anger and sleep loss. The first step towards taking control of your tinnitus is to consult a professional, so that together, you can find the treatment plan that will work for you.

    About our guest speakers:

    David Stockdale, BTA

    David was appointed Chief Executive of the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) in February 2010. He is responsible for the day to day running of the charity, and implements the strategy, as set by the Board of Trustees.
