In 2022 Hearing Australia is celebrating 75 years of helping Australians with expert hearing care. Since 1947, Hearing Australia has provided care to over 1 million Australians of all ages, from all walks of life. Now they are committed to making it easier than ever to access hearing care, with telehealth and online appointments, and audiologists and centres nationwide to find the right hearing solution for any budget.
Since the 1940s, Hearing Australia has been instrumental in shaping the lives of Australians, starting by helping returned World War Two veterans and young children affected by the rubella epidemic. More recently, Hearing Australia has been at the forefront in leading hearing-loss prevention, especially in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. In its proud history, Hearing Australia has celebrated many important milestones, world-firsts and other achievements in their mission to provide expert research and hearing care for the wellbeing of all Australians.
Hearing Australia is now firmly focused on the future. An estimated 3.6 million Australians are affected by hearing loss, and this is projected to more than double to 7.8 million by 2060, meaning nearly one in every five Australians will be affected. The team at Hearing Australia offer Australians the ability to take control of their hearing health and celebrate sound in all aspects of their life.
Hearing plays a major role in our lives, keeping us connected to people and involved in our professional and personal lives. Good hearing health helps people stay active, happy and involved in their world and the world around them.
A hearing check is a quick and easy way to help identify if hearing isn’t as sharp as it used to or should be. Not everyone who is experiencing problems hearing may need a hearing aid, some Australian’s only need support in listening to the TV at normal volumes, hearing at noisy social events, or hearing friends and family on the phone.
As it has been for the past 75 years, the Hearing Australia team remains deeply committed to improving hearing health and bringing the joy of sound alive for everyone. At the heart of everything they do, will always be… people.
