It can be perceived in one or both ears or in the head, and the effects of it can range from slight to debilitating. As most cases of Tinnitus are accompanied by hearing loss, the first preferred treatment is fitting prescribed hearing aids. Some models include additional sophisticated computer processing can provide a measure of relief. There is no known cure for Tinnitus, but there are techniques for diminishing its effects. Talk to your Audiologist if this is a major concern for you. (Lifestyle Jim's Sad Story While he was away overseas on holiday earlier this year, an advertisement caught Jim's eye. It was for "breakthrough" hearing aid technology and at such a cheap price! "For ages, I'd been aware that my hearing was getting worse, even though I'm only inmy50s.SoItook the plunge and went and bought two quite small hearing aids, for what seemed like a quarter of the price in Auckland." "I used them on holiday and mostly they seemed to be quite good." But when Jim arrived back he found that the hearing aids had started to 'whistle' and one side wasn't quite as strong as the other. So he made an appointment to see a local Registered Audiologist took them in to be checked. "To my horror, I found that although it was a well-known brand in NZ they were in fact a discontinued old model and there was no warranty. I was told that spare parts and servicing weren't available and effectively I'd bought a pup!" But, things got better for Jim. Accepting he'd had a bad experience made him realise that he should be serious about working with an Audiologist to restore confidence in his hearing. Because having a hearing aid is not like buying a pair of spectacles where the benefits are instantly apparent. Hearing loss is a complex condition and the hearing aid is just a small part of the process and cost of achieving better hearing. "I wish I had realised then that what I should have been investing in is the benefit of having an on-going working relationship with an Audiologist, and not just paying the lowest price - for what I wrongly thought was just a consumer product."

Advertisement Board makes three funding grants The Waiheke Local Board made three funding grants at its monthly meeting. A request for $4000 for foetal moni- toring equipment for midwives was granted. Film company Inkubator s request for $3450 was granted. Board members Jim Hannan and Paul Walden voted against it. The remaining $497 of the fund was tagged for Auckland Sexual Abuse Help Foundation at Waiheke Kinder- garten, which had requested $1800. In rehearsal: Film company Inkubator Limited has received a $3450 grant from the Waiheke Local Board for expenses towards its film about the Hip Op-eration crew. Dancers documented Go to waihekemarketplace. co.nz and click on Latest Edition to see a teaser of the film. A film company is to benefit from a $3450 grant from the Waiheke Local Board. Inkubator Limited owner and film producer Paula Jones applied for the money from the board s discretionary fund and was granted the entire sum last week. She told the board it was needed to help pay for travel and accommodation expenses to the island connected with a documen- tary she is making about the island s Hip Op-eration crew. She has been filming the dancers, who are aged between 66 and 96, since December last year. Ms Jones says the documen- tary, which has part funding from the New Zealand Film Com- mission, is about the crew and their lives. But the company had lacked sufficient funds to cover expenses on Waiheke, where film- ing happens three times a week. She says Inkubator had already budgeted to film the senior dancers on their trip to perform at the World Hip Hop Champion- ships in Las Vegas. Meanwhile the Hip-Operation crew is still busily fundraising for 31 of its members to make the trip to Las Vegas. A gala is being organised which the crew says will offer fun for all. It will be between 10am and 4pm at the Morra Hall in Oneroa on Sunday, July 7. There will be two auctions, stalls, raffles, food, live entertain- ment, hip hop dance lessons -- and a kissing booth where 96-year-old Violet Hollis will be puckering up for a dollar a kiss. One of the auctions will be of services from individual dance crew members -- everything from baby sitting and private music recitals, to gardening and a horse riding demonstration. You may even be filmed by the crew doing a movie about us due to be released in cinemas in April 2014, organisers say.
