Hearing Awareness Week is a great reminder for all Australians to be ‘hearing fit’ and incorporate regular hearing checks in their general health check-ups.

Since July 2017, Australian Hearing has provided almost 270,000 hearing services under the Australian Government Hearing Services program.

This includes 5,247 hearing services to indigenous clients, an increase of almost twelve per cent compared to the same period last year.

Australian Hearing is the largest provider of Government-funded hearing services and offers free, five-minute checks at its 600 locations across Australia.

To celebrate Hearing Awareness Week, Australian Hearing will today officially unveil its flagship store in Mt Gravatt, Queensland.

The new centre features an interactive reception area, activity zones, revamped consulting rooms and spaces to interact with the latest hearing technology.

This new design delivers on feedback from Australian Hearing’s clients, who told them they wanted a more open, interactive and welcoming space.

The result is the next generation of hearing care experience and a design which creates a strong sense of community.
