Hear Hear! Enjoy yourself at upcoming 60-plus Lifestyle Expo

Ears Hearing in Langley hosting fun, free and educational event May 10

Making life easier for people suffering from hearing loss has been a part of Kim Galick’s life for more than 25 years.

The owner of Ears Hearing Clinic in Langley enjoys taking that help to the next level, especially if you’re a local senior. She and her company are hosting the seventh annual 60-plus Lifestyle Expo, Friday, May 10 in the Langley Cascades Casino and Convention Centre ballroom.

At this free event, on from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., you’ll find out about ways to improve your life in other ways. Various local vendors will be on hand offering tips and information on everything from fitness to overall health, nutrition, better hearing, dealing with dementia in your family and more.

“The reason we do this is to give something back to our senior community,” Kim says. “There’s entertainment, seminars, door prizes and it’s all free.”

Morning guest speakers will inspire

If you’re looking to find new ways of improving your health, you may want to check out a talk by Fort Langley naturopath Dr. Erin Rurak (10 a.m.). Later on, you’ll hear Certified Executive Coach Jan Carley offer strategies for enhancing your mental and emotional health to gain a positive attitude in your 60s and beyond.

Join the crowd and have fun

The event is emceed by retired Langley City Fire Rescue fire chief Jim McGregor, described by Kim as a real character who keeps things light “by telling funny stories about seniors.” The Expo usually attracts up to 500 people through the day, and people generally report they have a good time, she says.

While you’re there, ask about hearing services

With decades of experience and professional standing as a Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner, Kim is a great person to ask about your options for restoring your ability to hear what’s going on around you, or that intimate conversation with a loved one. And as an independent clinic with low overhead, Ears is able to offer very competitive pricing on hearing aids and other products, Kim adds.

Ears Hearing, chosen for several straight years as your favourite hearing aid clinic in the Langley TimesReaders’ Choice Awards, offers you other services as well, from audiological evaluations to consultations and fittings for customized hearing protection, especially important if you’re regularly exposed to high-volume noise at work or home.

*****
