The weekly meetings of the Older Women’s Network Mackay (OWN) focus on different issues.
These can vary, and include health, education, wellness, battling social isolation and usually involve a good old-fashioned laugh.
Hearing was on the agenda for the month of July. Our invited guest, Jodie Miles from Mackay Hearing, provided us with a comprehensive overview of how our hearing operates and how common ailments might occur.
Jodie had a display of “modern day” hearing aids and many myths were dispelled.
Jodie also covered the issue of tinnitus, a very common complaint, and offered some potential solutions.
New members are always welcome; we meet each Tuesday at 9.30am at the Iona Hall in Brookes St, West Mackay.
