Press release on Wednesday 13th October 2018
A new support group has been set up for people affected by hearing loss in Grimsby.
‘Listen up Lincolnshire’ welcomes all hearing aid users, past and present, and their family and friends.
Mary Ramsden set up the group with the support of staff in the audiology service at Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.
Mary said: “As a hearing aid user for 36 years I have a lot of knowledge I’d like to share with others. If you or a loved one is struggling with hearing loss and want to learn how to communicate better we’ll be offering top tips for how to get the most out of hearing aids and giving you the chance to try out specialist equipment.”
Ross Keith, Team Leader in Audiology, said: “This is a much needed source of support for people in Grimsby that will offer a great opportunity to speak to others who are dealing with the challenges that can be associated with hearing loss.”
The next meeting is due to be held on Thursday October 25 from 2pm to 3.30pm at the Val Waterhouse Centre, Kent Street, Grimsby. Email email@example.com for further information
