Losing your hearing can seem like an unavoidable part of ageing, particularly when hearing aids become less and less effective. If this sounds like you, it's important to know that hearing aids are not the only way to improve your hearing.

Maintaining the best possible hearing as you age may have several benefits for your overall wellbeing, with research suggesting there are links between hearing loss and loneliness.1,2

So, if your hearing aids are no longer enough it's important to take action.


"I was yearning to hear ‘mummy’ again. I had almost forgotten what it sounded like."

- Sangeeta J, Cochlear™ implant recipient
