Outreach Clinic in Nenagh

DeafHearOn the first Tuesday of the month from 10am - 1pm, DeafHear holds an outreach clinic in the Tyone Health Centre in grounds of Nenagh General Hospital.

The objective is to provide a free service to Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in the Nenagh and surrounding areas, in particular those who attend the Community Audiology Clinic in the centre.

The Outreach Clinic Services include Advice and Information on:

  • Hearing Loss
  • Acquiring a Hearing Aid
  • Adjusting to Wearing a Hearing Aid
  • Communicating in Difficult Listening Situations
  • Assistive Technology
  • Tinnitus
  • Irish Sign Language

HSE hearing aid tubing can be changed and batteries for all hearing aids can be purchased for
€2 for a packet of 6.

Family members and local agencies are welcome to seek advice.

In the Mid-West (Clare, Limerick & North Tipperary), DeafHear is fortunate to have forged strong links with the Audiology Services. The effect is the provision of a better service for clients with hearing difficulties by having easy access to the additional services which DeafHear can offer. The outreach clinic is held to coincide with the Community Audiology Service so that both services can work in tandem and compliment each other to benefit service users.

The support and cooperation of the Community Audiologist Team -

Mr T. J. Nesakumaran, Ms Maria O´Brien and the staff is greatly appreciated and contributes significantly in implementing this joint approach.
