Description

Help reduce isolation and loneliness in older hard-of-hearing people in carer homes, by fixing hearing aids and creating smiles.
You’ll be able to gain invaluable experience working with older hard-of-hearing people in a care home setting.
Most residents of care homes are unable to “pop over” to their local audiologist whenever there is a problem with their hearing aid. It could mean months before it gets fixed. It means no chatting with the care staff or other residents, no taking part in activities, no fun or life at all.
By visiting care homes on a pre-arranged basis, you’ll ensure that hearing aids are cleaned and batteries are changed and smiles are created.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Full training on how to communicate with older people with hearing loss and a full course on how to provide basic maintenance on hearing aids. This will include how to change the tubes, clean and problem solve issues.
Full training is given on everything to do with the role so no previous experience is required.
