Christmas Survival Tips
Surviving Christmas, Easter and other social festivities can stretch our limited hearing and cause us stress, anxiety and exhaustion. Rowena provides some of her top hints and tips to make sure you don't miss out this silly season.
Music and deafness
There has been a lot of discussion in the media about the risk of deafness caused by listening to music on a personal audio device such as an iPod or MP3 player.
Cochlear Implant - Pushing the limits
A week of celebration pushed my hearing to the limits and my cochlear implant helped me cope.
Gradually missing sounds
Sound gradually fades when deafness creeps upon us. Most of the time we don’t recognise what we are missing but then one day we are startled when remember we haven’t heard something for a long time.
Depression and isolation can lead to paranoia for late deafened adults. It creeps up and is the result of mis-understanding social cues.
Travelling can pose special challenges for a deaf or hard of hearing person, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go.
Don't suffer hearing loss in silence
Technology is improving all the time and unless we hear about these then there’s no way they can benefit us. I asked Linda Ballam-Davies from Cochlear to give me the latest information about new implantable solutions.
Hearing Loss and Driving Cars
Should hearing impairment stop you from driving? Are there any rules and if so what are they? What does the research show about safe driving for deaf people.
Hearing, understanding and listening
There are three aspects to hearing but only two for effective communication. Interestingly while the hearing process can help understanding it doesn’t necessarily mean you listen effectively.
The Joy of Hearing
Why does hearing sound bring us joy? The joy in hearing is more than just the opposite of the pain of not hearing. The joy of hearing is more subtle and refined.
