There are many conversations that can be difficult to navigate within audiology.
- How do I respond when a person is upset, angry or anxious?
- What do I say when a person thinks a hearing aid will make them look old?

Soundfair’s Hearing Bank
A pair of hearing aids purchased through the private market ranges from $5,000 to $10,000 and Federal Government funding for hearing aids is limited, leaving many people to struggle with hearing conditions on their own.
The Soundfair Hearing Bank offers holistic support and training for people with hearing conditions before sending them home with their recycled hearing aid. Learn more: https://soundfair.org.au/community-projects/hearing-bank/
