Principal Audiologist

Why is good hearing so important?

Our ability to hear connects us to the world. Untreated hearing loss is linked to early onset and symptoms of dementia, it affects our relationships with our loved ones, can lead to frustration, impacts our social life and can cause withdrawal, isolation and depression. Reduced hearing affects our ability to understand speech clearly, know where sounds are coming from and can also impact our balance.

 

What is the cost of a full hearing test?

Your hearing test will be completely free if you have a Pensioner Concession Card as we are accredited by the Commonwealth Government to provide fully subsidised services, including a range of free hearing aids if required. If you are self-funded, the cost for a full assessment is $97-$127. You may be entitled to rebates from private health insurance depending on your cover.

What are common signs of

hearing loss?

  • You hear but don’t always quite ‘catch’ or understand clearly what has been said

  • Your family complain about the volume when you are listening to the television

  • You find it difficult to follow a conversation in noisy environments

  • You often feel exhausted after family celebrations because listening is such an effort
