Action on Hearing Loss Scotland is encouraging people to get their hearing checked and, if necessary, make a GP appointment to get a referral for a thorough hearing test by an audiologist.
The charity’s Hear to Inform and Connect service, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund is holding an information event in Portlethen Community Campus Library, Bruntland Road between 10:30-12:00 on Monday 1 April.
Action on Hearing Loss Scotland’s Rhona Campbell said: "We want to reassure many older Portlethen residents that getting your hearing checked really is a straight forward process and inform them of the benefits which hearing aids bring for people who have their deafness diagnosed as early as possible.
We want to ensure that more local people are fully aware about the process of getting fitted with hearing aids programmed to meet their individual needs and be able to stay connected with family, friends and neighbours."
