    About hearing loss and how to manage it

    One in six Australians suffers from a hearing loss. By 2050 this will increase to one in four. Hearing loss can make daily communication with the people around you harder. Less than 20 percent of people with a hearing loss have taken steps to deal with the problem. You need the right information from the right source, so that’s why we’ve carefully prepared information in this section to help you manage hearing loss.

    About Us

    Better Hearing Australia (Vic) is Victoria's only independent hearing management service. We help you navigate your way through the maze of hearing services and technology. Our professional staff will work with you to understand your individual needs. Find out about how we work, our people, history and philosophy.
