 For some people, hearing aids are no longer enough. 

90% of adults with hearing loss who could benefit from cochlear implants don’t have one
If hearing loss is not addressed by middle age, there is a higher risk of dementia 
Nearly 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 is affected by hearing loss

With hearing aids on, do you find it difficult to hear…

On the phone?In crowded places?Children's voices clearly?

If you answer YES to one or more of these questions, a cochlear implant may be right for you.
