Deaf and Hearing Support

Assessment and support at home

If you are Deaf or hard of hearing and have difficulties hearing normal daily sounds; e.g. doorbell, telephone, TV and smoke alarm and similar. you may request a hearing impairment assessment at home.

The Technical Officer will carry out an assessment and identify your needs. Appropriate advice, information and equipment/adaptation will be discussed based on the needs identified.

Is there a charge for services?
