Free NHS hearing aid maintenance will be on offer at Edzell’s mobile library service at Inglis Memorial Hall on Monday, July 29.

Trained Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s ‘Hear to Help’ project volunteers will be on hand to provide free maintenance for NHS hearing aid users as well as giving information about hearing loss.

A spokesperson stressed that it is important that you look after your hearing aids and clean them regularly. Batteries need to be replaced and the tubing that connects the ear mould to the hearing aid needs to be changed every three to six months.

The mobile service will be in Edzell from 10.20 to 11.50 a.m. on Monday, July 29.

Project co-ordinator, Michelle Donoghue, said: “Working with the mobile library will hopefully help us reach people who may not be able to use our usual drop-in services.

“It’s amazing how simple adjustments, cleaning or maintenance to hearing aids can make a world of difference to how clearly people can hear their friends and family.”
