ANOTHER LEARNING CURVE……….CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Penny Stannard with President Catherine Beal

 

Members were on another learning curve at their August meeting when Hearing Therapist, Penny Stannard, explained the challenges of deafness and how sufferers can be helped to manage this important sense.

Penny explained how the ear functions and how hearing loss sufferers can help themselves as well as those nearest and dearest.  She also explained the various other hearing problems e.g. tinnitus, Meniere’s disease, labyrinthitis, their causes, treatments available and several self-help measures.
