Path to a Cochlear Implant
How do you get a Cochlear Implant? How do you qualify? Where can you get one? Itís a question I get asked often and although it is different in every country the steps are sure to be similar.

How hearing loss affects people
The way you respond to your hearing loss will depend on your stage of life, your personality, the way you deal with set-backs and your support group; family, friends, colleagues. It is an individual response and not everyone is affected, nor deals with the changes in the same way.
Looking after your hearing
For most of us we have heard since we were born and we took it for granted just like we took our fingers or toes or nose for granted. We had it - we heard - and we thought there was nothing we had to do to make sure it continued.
