One in six people in Australia have some degree of hearing loss, with this number is set to increase to one-in- four by 2050.
Despite being better at protecting hearing by using earplugs but it is an ever increasing noisy world.
Some of the most common complaints about 'noise pollution' is, noisy shopping malls, clubs, traffic and restaurants, so much so, that some people prefer to stay home rather than try to understand what is being said to them.
Hearing loss can be an isolating disability.
Helping people handle hearing loss is the goal for Better Hearing Australia.
The organisation has been operating for 75 years at a national scale and 50 years in Wagga.
Better Hearing Australia's main objective is to help post lingual adults manage their hearing loss, by providing lip-reading classes and information on assisted listening devices.
Better Hearing Wagga has moved into new premises within The Hearing Support Centre at 256 Kincaid Street Wagga.
"We are always happy to answer any questions people may have regarding their hearing loss," Better Hearing Wagga president Judi Frazer said.
Nationally, Better Hearing Australia is the longest running and only independent hearing advocacy and consumer advice organisation in Australia. The organisations works with branches Australia wide who deliver local programs and services.
