Choosing the right hearing aid – FOR YOU

Clinical Audiologist Dr Peter O'Brien AuD MNZAS Audiology Associates

The words 'For You' are the most important. Not only are no two hearing losses exactly the same, but individual demands on similar hearing losses can be very different. The best and simplest thing to do is to write yourself a “shopping list.” Note down the situations in which you notice difficulty hearing (or others have noticed a problem with your hearing). For example:

- I cannot hear the TV at a volume others can tolerate
- I cannot hear my grandchildren when they are in the back seat of the car
- I cannot hear my family when they call me on the phone etc

Not only do these help you frame your problem, but they also become very valuable “check lists” for monitoring the effectiveness of any suggested solution, including hearing aids. It helps to put you and the audiologist on the same page. The team at Audiology Associates are happy to help with all your hearing needs.

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

Hi, since lockdown I've been amusing myself drawing cartoons, giving myself a target of three each day - which is hard. I'm posting them on Facebook each day. Hope you enjoy them.
