UPDATE from Hearing Help Essex
22nd July 2020
Maldon District Hearing Help Hub opening 4th August
Hearing Help Essex, a Chelmsford based not-for-profit charity, is pleased to announce that their services will resume to residents of Maldon District from 4th August 2020, after having to pause their walk-in service across the District back in March due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Easing back into business after months of lockdown, the Charity has worked hard in making provision to resume its services in a safe and socially distanced environment to support the many people across Essex who have acquired hearing loss and wear NHS Hearing aids.
NHS Hearing Aid Support, the cleaning and re-tubing of hearing aids, will be offered to clients who need help. Appointments will be held at Plantation Hall, Heybridge, two days each month (this may increase depending on demand). For those who are housebound or shielding, a doorstep service will also be available to residents across the District. Due to social distancing measures, all appointments must be booked in advance.
The Charity also provide an Information, Advice, and Guidance Service to people across Essex living with hearing loss, and this service is currently being delivered from their Resource Centre in central Chelmsford, in person, or by phone, video call, text message, or email.
Sophie Ede, CEO, Hearing Help Essex comments:
“We are delighted to be back to doing what we do best and are hugely grateful to our Volunteers, and the team at Plantation Hall for making this possible. It is important for Hearing Aids to be re-tubed and cleaned every 4-6 months to ensure best efficiency and benefit to wearers”.
Further updates will be posted on our website www.hearinghelpessex.org.uk and also on our social media channels.
