March 3 is World Hearing Day and a timely reminder for all of us to have our hearing checked.
The World Health Organisation highlights that when early and effective interventions are put in place, people with hearing loss are able to achieve their full potential.
At all stages of life, good communication and hearing health help us to connect to our families, friends, community and the world.
The Office Public Guardian has Auslan videos available on our website that provide guardianship information to people with a hearing impairment.
For more information about World Hearing Day, please visit the World Health Organisation website.
If you would like to talk to someone about guardianship please call 1800 810979 or view our FAQ fact sheet.
