Margo Harrison, a hearing impaired recipient, came along to speak at the event, also introducing us to 'Pebbles'. Thank you to all our loyal supporters and participants for helping make this year's Golf Day another great success. We commemorated 15 years since the establishment of The Hearing Care Centre with a scrummy Champagne Afternoon Tea at the newly refurbished Colchester Castle, on 25 June.
Joined by many of our longstanding clients, we also welcomed as special guests the new Mayor and Mayoress of Colchester, John and Janet Elliott, as well as Mr Don McFerran, local Consultant ENT Surgeon.
We were also delighted to have father-and-daughter duo, Roger and Ruth Montgomery, providing background music.
Vicki Skeels and Nancy Usher, the Centre's marketing manager, had the honour of helping to judge last year's Colchester Business Awards. As The Hearing Care Centre has itself been the proud recipient of numerous Excellent Customer Service awards over the years, and with Vicki just finishing her reign as Colchester Business Woman of the Year, we believe we are well equipped to accurately judge this category.'Outstanding customer service is something we continually strive for at the Centre,' says Vicki, 'and we know what this requires from all parts of our business – from frontline staff right through to back-office operations. Vicki  and Dr Ella Carmaciu (our new micro-suction specialist) with Carolina, one of our new 'patients' in Brasov, Romania.
During the October 2013 half-term, Vicki and a small team of volunteers had the opportunity to visit Romania, to bring help – and hearing – to hearing impaired pensioners unable to afford hearing aids. Vicki Skeels has been appointed to the Council of the Association of Independent Hearing Healthcare Professionals (AIHHP).
AIHHP is dedicated to promoting excellence within the UK hearing industry, with members providing a range of higher quality services than is found on the high street.. We are proud to have joined a new scheme, run in conjunction with Help for Heroes and hearing aid manufacturer, Phonak. As a member of AIHHP, we will provide free, state-of-the-art hearing aids to British Servicemen and women, who have been discharged from the forces due to damaged hearing in recent conflicts.
We have now introduced a pretty accurate online hearing test based on sound presentation, why don't you test your hearing? Just like our eyesight, hearing has its own natural ageing process.The majority of people experience gradual hearing loss through the course of life. We will examine the outside of your ears first, then we will look in your ears with a light.
This battery of tests involves carefully listening through headphones that are placed over the ears or insert earphones that are placed in the ear canals. Additional tests may be added to the group of tests if an asymmetry of thresholds is found, or if you have tinnitus or dizziness.


Words will be presented at a comfortable listening level through headphones and you will have to repeat them. This group of tests is plotted on our system which allows us to assess the impact that your hearing loss is having on your understanding of speech sounds.
Our specialist system allows us to present speech to you in both quiet and noisy situations. It consists of measuring how much your eardrums are moving and if that movement is within normal limits.
An ear tip is placed in the canal that is connected to a machine that briefly varies the pressure in the ear. When we hear a loud noise, our ear protects itself with a reflex which stiffens the eardrum. If you are a suitable candidate for hearing aids, we will then move onto a hearing aid benefit assessment. Our state of the art system allows us to test the benefit of the hearing aids in real world situations, so if your problem is in noisy environments such as a restauraunt. The support doesn't stop there, any further adjustments or advice about the hearing instrument is free of charge.
If at any time you need to see us or need advice on your hearing system just call us to make an appointment and we would be happy to help.
With over 25 years of experience in hearing aid audiology we offer the highest quality in hearing aids & hearing healthcare services. We provide hearing tests, tinnitus management, earwax removal, noise protection and hearing aids in our Worcester hearing aid centre. Fitting of hearing aids - custom made in-ear hearing aids will be fit 2 weeks after the hearing test. Aftercare - Follow up visits are made to ensaure your aids fit and work to your satisfaction. We offer £50 for recommendations if you recommend someone to us and they subsequently buy, and keep, a pair of hearing aids.
Looking on are audiologist Debbie Lawrence (left), who will run the new clinic, and Carole Butterfield, manager of the Foundry Court Community Centre. These will be run by Richard Lusher-Seaman on alternate Mondays at the Old Road Clinic, 115 Old Road, Frinton CO13 9BX. He gave an informative speech about the massive leaps forward in hearing aid technology, also praising the Centre for always keeping abreast of developments and offering the very best quality instruments on the market.
Ruth, a flautist, is profoundly deaf, but this has not stopped her carving out a musical and teaching career for herself.
They had responsibility for the Excellent Customer Service category, always a hotly-contested award with the highest number of entries. Romanian-born Dr Carmaciu is the micro-suction specialist at our Colchester and Chelmsford centres, who initiated the trip. Her dedication to her work is truly outstanding and also juggling a family has shown inspiration to others. In fact, we have already welcomed our first client, ex-paratrooper Ben Lancaster, who suffered hearing loss after being injured in an IED strike in Afghanistan. But new digital hearing aid technology can manage that hearing loss in 95% of all cases and help you to regain a better quality of life.


It answers the question of whether or not hearing sensitivity is within normal range, or if there is a hearing loss or hearing sensitivity that is outside of the range of normal.
Next, pure tones will be presented through the headphones or insert earphones, as well as through a bone conduction vibrator on a headband that is placed behind the ear. This test gives the clinician further information on the status of your inner ear function. It helps to answers the question of whether or not hearing sensitivity is within normal range, or if there is a hearing loss or hearing sensitivity that is outside of the range of normal. During these tests you will be asked to repeat words that are presented to you at normal speech volume  levels. The outer hair cells produce low-level sounds called Otoacoustic Emissions in response to clicks.
During this test we use our fitting suite to fit a set of suitable hearing aids to your defined loss. We can put you there and test the benefit of the devices without you having to leave the comfort of our office. Many of the recipients heard properly for the first time in decades, and their emotions often brought tears to our eyes.
The test results are also used as a tool to reveal any asymmetry (hearing sensitivity that is not equal between the two ears). You will listen for the softest level you can detect, and will push a button or raise your hand in response. The test results are also used as a tool to reveal exactly how your loss is effecting your understanding of speech in both quiet and noisy situations. There are two parts to the Middle Ear Assessment: the Tympanometry and the Acoustic Reflexes. The extent of the response and the frequency at which the response occurs is measured and recorded. We then use Real Ear Measurement (REM) to verify that the devices are delivering the amplification that you need. The customers feedback can engage you a great of the value and uppercase satisfaction of the product. This will tell us if the hearing is within normal range or in case of a hearing loss, what type and what level of hearing loss is present. If your difficulty is only or mainly in the presence of background noise, an optional speech-in-noise test, LiSN-S (Listening in Spatialized Noise Sentences test) is also available. This test and the rest of the group of tests also give us information toward a diagnosis of ear abnormalities.
Referrals unfortunately cannot apply if the referral is passed on to an affiliated company. This test is also an excellent tool for assisting us in the recommendation of suitable hearing aids because it allows us to define the sounds in speech that you have most difficulty with.
