_Working with

Medical Card holders

_Learn more about

Hearing aid technology

The right hearing aid can transform your life, opening up a world of communication. While hearing aids may seem a little complicated at first, Chime’s team of experienced audiologists are here to help you to find the right hearing aid and to advise you on how to keep it in tip top shape.

At your hearing assessment our fully qualified audiology team will chat to you about any issues you have been having.  They will then be able to discuss possible solutions, explore hearing aid options and work with you to create a hearing loss management plan.

_Meet new people

Get connected

Chime’s social groups are a great way to meet people who are on the same path as you, share stories and experiences and feel inspired and empowered. Find out more about our Hard of Hearing social group here.

_Ways to improve


Do you have a friend who has recently been diagnosed with hearing loss? Maybe you have a family member who is Deaf, or you work with someone who is Hard of Hearing. Sometimes you can come across some bumps in the road when it comes to communication. But Chime is here to help.

Supported by funding from the Community Project of Ireland, Chime has worked with our Deaf and Hard of Hearing clients to put together a collection of communication hints and tips to help you communicate better with Deaf or Hard of Hearing friends. Below you’ll find a series of short videos that will help to make every conversation clearer.
