Disposable hearing aids
Hearing aids have come a long way from the analogue aids I wore. My aids were relatively bulky and either sat behind my ear or filled my ear canal leaving me with a hot stuffed feeling. But the latest hearing aids are digital and are far more powerful and adaptable than old analogue aids.
Distance and Cochlear Implants

Donít hide your hearing loss, nor indeed hide behind your hearing loss. Itís very easy to be defined and define yourself as the one who is deaf Ė as if this is something important and perhaps an excuse for not being involved in things.
Eavesdropping or overhearing?
Deafness isolates us from important social and conversational experiences which are not easily caught up in other ways.
