HEARING SUPPORT SERVICE - Coronavirus Update

NDA Update April 23rd – Covid -19

We are pleased to confirm that our staff and volunteers continue to offer all the practical support
and advice that we can, during this difficult period, as follows:

Hearing Support Service (hearing aids maintenance)

Currently our community based and mobile clinics are postponed, but if you require help with the
maintenance of your hearing aids or advice please contact our office via nda@norfolkdeaf.org.uk or
on 01603 404440 and we will do our utmost to help. All our clinics and home visit we be reinstated at the earliest opportunity and when safe to do so.

We can send hearing aid supplies where possible and whilst stock allows, provide guidance to carers
or family members on how to replace the tubes, domes and batteries and in exceptional
circumstances, and when possible, organise for a volunteer to visit and undertake the maintenance
task by following social distancing guidelines and using appropriate personal protective equipment.

Aural Care Service (ear wax removal using microsuction)

This service is running as usual for both, GP referrals and self – referrals. We are operating enhanced infection control procedures, using personal protective equipment, screening patients on arrival and stringently apply the social distancing guidelines when running our clinics. Please contact
appointments@norfolkdeaf.org.uk or ring 01603 404440 for further information/bookings and the
process to follow.

Welcome to the
Norfolk Deaf Association

The Norfolk Deaf Association (NDA) is a charitable company founded in 1898.

Our work aims to improve the lives of young people and adults of all ages in Norfolk with all degrees of hearing loss. We achieve this by offering personal, emotional and practical support, undertaking hearing aid maintenance, providing information on hearing loss and related conditions, and training. The key outcomes we are striving to achieve for our service users are to reduce feeling of loneliness and isolation, resulting in improved well-being and quality of life.

Service users accessing the Hearing Support Service will be more able to communicate with others as a result of their hearing aids functioning well, this building on their confidence and self-esteem, which in turn will enable them to remain active in their work, education or social activities.

Please visit our ‘Support the NDA’ pages to see how you may be able to help us, donate or get involved.
