FAIRFIELD — A local company will offer free hearing screening next month in Fairfield for area seniors.
Staff from Ellen Anderson Hearing Services will do the screening exams from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 10 at the Fairfield Senior Center, 1200 Civic Center Drive.
One out of every three seniors who are 60 or older have hearing loss. That number jumps to half for people 85 and older, according to a city press release. The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders reports that hearing loss is one of the most common conditions affecting older people.
Senior residents are asked to call the senior center’s front desk at 428-7421 to schedule appointments.
