Free cochlear implant info session

If you struggle to hear on the phone or in crowded places, even while wearing your hearing aids, then you could benefit from a cochlear implant.

A cochlear implant is a hearing device that stimulates the hearing nerve, known as the cochlea or auditory nerve, to provide access to high-quality, more detailed sound.

This can make it easier to understand speech, interact with others, hear in loud environments, locate where sound is coming from and—importantly—connect with the world around you.

Not-for-profit organisation NextSense is hosting a free virtual information session about cochlear implants on Wednesday 15 May, where you can:

  • learn about how cochlear implants are different to hearing aids
  • hear firsthand from a cochlear implant recipient
  • have your questions answered.

Why does hearing loss need to be addressed?

Hearing loss is the number one, biggest modifiable risk for dementia in middle age.

As hearing deteriorates and people withdraw from social activities, wellbeing and mental health are at risk.

92% of adults who could benefit from cochlear implants haven’t explored it yet. Find out if implants might be right for you from the comfort of your own home at this information session.
