Laura Ainsworth is our Adult Community Support Coordinator for the Hear to Help service here at The Ear Foundation in Nottingham.
The aim of the Hear 2 Help project is to provide hearing aid maintenance, advice and support within the local community to NHS hearing aid users via Drop In Clinics, Care Home visits, Sheltered Housing visits and Home visits.
We also provide Care Home and Home visits as required and training to carers and support workers for those people working with and around hearing loss and hearing aids.
if you know someone who has a hearing loss and wears NHS hearing aids and you think they could benefit from this service
would like more information on the Drop In Clinics
or if you would like to suggest areas where this service may be needed and could possibly offer a room for a Drop In Clinic.
....then please contact Laura on: 0115 942 7804 or you can email Laura
Drop in Clinics
At the Drop In Clinics we provide:
Re-tubing of hearing aids
Signposting to other services
We currently run 18 Drop In Clinics in the Nottingham area, and we are hoping to extend this service to the more rural areas, where people are particularly more isolated, please see below a list of all our current Drop In Clinics:
There are some changes for some of our clinics for July and August so please check the following poster for any updates: July & August 2018_UPDATES Please note that if a clinic has been cancelled in July or August they will still be able to provide batteries to you.
