The main building has a hearing loop and we are about to loop the meeting room shortly.

We can arrange accreditation with the Department of Ageing for these services and once  approved, services such as home assistance and  other services are available to recipients .

If you already have a Cochlear Implant or are just contemplating getting one, we are  happy to meet with you personally for a chat and provide knowledge on how your life can be enhanced through knowledge  of assistive devices available to enhancing your life as a hearing impaired person.
