Tinnitus Awareness Week – Information Day

DeafHear.ie Tinnitus Awareness 

Week – Information Day 2014.

On Tuesday 4th February Killarney DeafHear will host a day of information and support on the issues of Tinnitus.

According to the Irish Tinnitus Association’s definition: Tinnitus is the term for noises which can be heard “in the ears” or “in the head” – buzzing, ringing, whistling, hissing and other sounds – which do not come from an external source. It is a common condition, affecting up to one in ten of the adult population.

“Many people can experience Tinnitus at certain times in their lives and some find it can adversely affect their quality of life. However it is important to know that Tinnitus can be managed using simple and effective techniques. To mark Tinnitus Awareness Week we are inviting people to come along, to meet with staff as well as others who have experienced Tinnitus. We will have information on the subject as well as techniques to manage the condition.” says Jo Lambe – Community Resource Officer for DeafHear in Killarney.

As well as gaining a better understanding of the condition and accessing information on effective management, people will also have the opportunity to meet with Liz Dowling – an experienced relaxation therapist with an understanding of Tinnitus.

This free event will be held on Tuesday 4th February from 11– 1pm at the DeafHear office in Killarney.
