Hearing screenings

In our short 15 minute hearing screenings your clinician will check your hearing and determine if you need a full hearing assessment. Your audiologist or audiometrist will begin by looking into your ears and assessing your ear health. Following this you will listen to sounds of various pitch, frequency and volume. Your clinician will then record whether you are able to hear these sounds and use this information to determine if you need a full hearing assessment. If you or a family member need a hearing screening, call 1800 054 667 to book your appointment with our specialist Lions Hearing Clinic audiologists and audiometrists.

Comprehensive hearing assessments. (Subsidised hearing assessments for pensioners and DVA patients)

Our comprehensive hearing assessments will provide you a thorough understanding of your hearing loss as well as expert recommendations regarding solutions for your hearing loss. Taking up to 75 minutes, we will look into your ears and assess your health. We will also assess your ability to hear by having you listen to beeping sounds of different pitch, frequency and volume. Finally we will check the air pressure within your ear canal. These three tests will provide us a comprehensive overview of your hearing.

Following your hearing tests your audiologist or audiometrist will ask you questions regarding your lifestyle and needs to determine the best solution for you. Using this information our qualified clinicians will recommend different hearing solutions to manage your hearing loss. They will thoroughly explain all of the options available to you and your family. Following a thorough discussion of these options they will provide you and your family expert advice to find the best hearing solution that meets your needs. Throughout the entire assessment your audiologist or audiometrist will be focused on listening to your needs and answering all of your questions. After your assessment they will send a report detailing your hearing loss to your doctor. This is sent so that your doctor and other medical specialists have a record of your hearing loss and can properly assess your overall health. If you are a pensioner or a DVA client you may be eligible for subsidised hearing assessments. If you or a family member need a hearing assessment, call 1800 054 667 to book your appointment with our specialist Lions Hearing clinicians.

Hearing Device Fitting

If you need a hearing device your specialist audiologist or audiometrist will fit you with your hearing devices in a hearing device fitting appointment. In this appointment your clinician will show you how to manage your device, insert your device and use your device. They will also adjust the settings of your hearing devices to your unique hearing loss. To adjust your hearing device your audiologist or audiometrist will have you listen to sounds that mirror the different pitched of normal conversation.  They will then fine tune your device to make sure you are comfortable and that you are getting the best hearing results possible.

Hearing device adjustment, fine tuning, rehabilitation and ongoing support

At Lions Hearing Clinics our clinicians are dedicated to making sure you are comfortable and satisfied after you have received your hearing device. For this reason we provide all our patients comprehensive ongoing support and rehabilitation. This ongoing support and rehabilitation includes a 3 year warranty for all hearing aids, a 30 day money back guarantee and a 6 month FREE support appointment. During this time your clinicians will discuss with you your experience with your hearing device and following this discussion, fine tune your hearing device for maximum comfort and effectiveness. Throughout this appointment your audiologist and audiometrist will focus on listening to you attentively and helping you in any way they can to adjust the device to better fit your lifestyle.  At Lions Hearing Clinics we focus on providing you the best service we can, no matter if you have just come in for your first appointment or have had a device for many years.

Listening devices to help you hear in certain situations

Besides hearing devices that are directly fitted to your ears, there are a number of other hearing alternatives that are specially designed to improve your ability to hear in specific listening situations. These specially designed hearing devices are called Assistive Listening Devices. They can help you hear in a range of situations including listening over the telephone, hearing in background noise, hearing the TV, listening in small or large group discussions and hearing alarms. Assistive Listening Devices can work both separately to hearing devices fitted to your ears and in conjunction with hearing devices fitted to your ears. You can try all of our assistive listening devices in our open to the public trial room at Lions Hearing Clinics Mount Lawley. Click here to read more about assistive listening devices.

Tinnitus assessment and management

Our tinnitus management strategies incorporate hearing devices, environmental sounds and psychotherapy to significantly reduce the distress caused by your hearing loss.

Communication strategies

Our clinicians at Lions Hearing Clinics offer a large variety of communication strategies. Communication strategies are practical tips and advice to improve your ability to hear. They can be used by people with hearing loss or people without hearing loss to improve communication.

At Lions Hearing Clinics we teach families a variety of communication strategies. We aim to empower them so they can better communicate to their family member with hearing loss and improve their family members hearing results. Research has shown that having a significant other attend audiological appointments and become involved in the rehabilitation process leads to improved hearing results. We incorporate this finding into all of our rehabilitation programs by involving all family members in the rehabilitation process. We show family members how they can best communicate and improve their communication with the family member with hearing loss. Family members are also shown the different things they can do to help a family member achieve the best hearing results possible. To discuss the communication strategies we can offer your family, call 1800 054 667 to book an appointment at our Lions Hearing Clinics.

For people with hearing loss we have developed a range of tried and tested strategies to effectively improve their ability to hear and communicate. Our communication strategies can improve your ability to hear in a range of situations including noisy environments, over the telephone, in social situations and at work. These strategies are effective for people with hearing devices, without hearing devices and even those who don’t have a hearing loss. They work by incorporating tools such as lip reading, visual cues and vibrations to assist in communication. All of our strategies are based on the latest clinical research and findings by our Ear Science Research Team and in the general field of Audiology.

For businesses we can offer practical training and advice on how they can improve their communication in noisy environments. All people can find it extremely difficult to communicate and hear in noisy environments and our team at the Lions Hearing Clinic can assist businesses in this communication. Over one in six Australians have hearing loss and as this number is set to increase to one in four by 2050, it is becoming increasingly important that businesses learn to effectively communicate to those with hearing loss. Those with hearing loss are often shy about their condition and rather than telling your business they can’t understand you, they will choose to nod and leave without understanding. This can negatively effect their view of your business, simply because they couldn’t hear you properly. As the number of people with hearing loss increases, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure your business is aware of the best practices to communicate in noise. To discuss the communication strategies we can offer your business, call 1800 054 667.
