Hearing van set to arrive in Cork
To celebrate the fifth year of the Specsavers’ Sound Check Ireland Roadshow, Specsavers announced that they would be introducing two mobile hearing vans to travel the length and breadth of the country to raise awareness of the importance of hearing throughout the year.
Mobile hearing vans
These special mobile hearing test vans are designed to make it even easier for people to take the first step in tackling hearing loss. Free on site hearing screenings and professional advice will be available to anyone who is concerned about their hearing.
The hearing test van will be visiting The Mallow Home and Garden Festival which takes place on the following days:
Friday 27 May: 11am to 6pm
Saturday 28 May: 11am to 6pm
Sunday, 29 May: 11am to 6pm
The Mallow Home and Garden Festival will be situated at the Cork Race Course in Mallow.
Regular hearing tests
Director of Specsavers Cork, Claire Morrin comments on the importance of regular hearing tests 'Untreated hearing loss can impact negatively on all areas of daily life so if you suspect that someone close to you struggles with their hearing, don’t let them suffer in silence and encourage them to seek advice'
Depression and social isolation
Untreated hearing loss can affect every aspect of life and can lead to depression and social isolation which is why early diagnosis is essential. Identifying the problem early and addressing hearing loss with an expert can mean preserving the ability to communicate with friends and family well into later life.
Regular hearing checks should be part of everyone’s healthcare routine and at Specsavers Cork, we recommend that people over the age of 55 get a hearing test every two years.
