AUSTRALIAN Hearing will be offering free hearing checks to local residents when the hearing bus stops off in Proserpine on June 6.

Australian Hearing Mackay manager Rosemarie Walker said hearing loss was a prevalent issue in the community, with around 60 per cent of Australians over the age of 60 suffering from some form of hearing loss.

"The mobile service is a convenient way to check your hearing and make sure you are in good hearing health," she said.

"A hearing check is a quick and easy way to measure the sounds you can and can't hear. Our team will also be on hand to guide you through what next steps you may have to take in regards to your hearing."

As well as having a hearing check, visitors to the bus can find information on a range of common hearing issues and view a display of easy-to-use hearing devices for around the home.

This includes headsets for watching the TV and alert systems for doorbells.

Ms Walker said not everyone who had experienced hearing problems needed a hearing aid.

"Sometimes it's just hearing the TV at normal volumes, hearing your doorbell or hearing your friends on the phone that's the problem."

Australian Hearing will provide hearing checks to any interested adults who visit the bus on the day and no appointment is necessary.

The Australian Hearing Bus will be at the Faust IGA Supermarket car park on Mill Street, Proserpine from 9.30am to 1.30pm on June 6.

Australian Hearing provides subsidised hearing care for eligible people, including pensioners and most veterans.
