Center offering free hearing tests

The Beltone Hearing Center is offering free in-depth hearing screenings throughout March to celebrate the company’s 77th anniversary.

Nearly 50 percent of Americans over the age of 75 have disabling hearing loss, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.

“Less than one-third of people 70 and older who have hearing loss currently benefit from the use of hearing aids,” said Corrine Perritano, president of Beltone North America.
