TLC Care recently hosted an open day to their Cuffley Manor and Candlewood House residents to help promote their ear and hearing healthcare services. They were joined by Anzil and Martina from TympaHealth, who alongside the team of carers and team members at TLC Care, helped to raise awareness about the service they can offer to residents by inviting family members and visitors to a free ear and hearing health check-up.
Tympa Senior Trainer, Anzil
“With wax impaction and general hearing health not being readily accessible in communities, it has a large impact on people that don’t have the ability to go to a clinic for regular check-ups. Being able to partner with TLC Care has given the impact we can make in people’s lives another meaning. I left with a warm heart knowing I had another opportunity to create more awareness in general hearing health and ear care.”

“It was a great day; people were engaged, and everyone was asking about our fantastic piece of equipment. A lot of visitors asked to have their ears checked because they were very curious to see how our technology works, and they were so enthusiastic.”
TLC Care is a pioneer in offering ear and hearing healthcare in their care homes. By using the Tympa System, TLC Care can provide regular check-ups with residents from the comfort of their own home.
Maintaining a good standard of ear and hearing health can help prevent social isolation as members of the community remain active and engaged with other residents, care team members and family. Not only that, it can also reduce the risk of falls and limits the risk of early onset dementia.
TLC Care are an early adopter of the Tympa System and were the first care home in the UK to introduce the service in their care homes.
