Congratulations on beginning

your journey to better hearing!

Your hearing healthcare clinician shared your details with us to help guide you through the process to be assessed for a cochlear implant, to potentially improve your hearing and quality of life.

 

There are several steps in your exciting journey and lots of information to consider along the way. We are here to help guide you and point out relevant information as you go.

Milestones on Your Hearing Journey

There are 10 key steps in your hearing journey to improving your hearing and quality of life with a cochlear implant. These are summarised below:

  1. High powered hearing aids are no longer providing you adequate benefit

  2. Your hearing healthcare professional identifies you as a potential candidate and the referral process for cochlear implant (CI) assessment commences

  3. You will receive contact from someone with a CI, to help answer your questions

  4. Initial appointment scheduled at CI centre

  5. If you choose to proceed, next will be a follow-up appointment at CI centre 

  6. Appointment with Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeon

  7. Scheduling of surgery

  8. Final pre-operative appointment

  9. Surgery day

  10. CI activation day

The next step we would recommend is talking with someone who has been in a similar place before, someone who was struggling with their hearing and went on to get a cochlear implant to help get more out of life. One of our cochlear implant mentors is ready to reach out and share their experiences and answer your questions. Click here to be put in contact with a mentor. You may choose to email, phone, video call, or meet them in person- it’s up to you- this is your hearing journey!
