The Pindrop Foundation will be holding its biennial adult cochlear implant forum on 2nd November 2019, with the theme: ‘The campaign to end silence.’
Hearing loss is not just about the absence of sound. It’s about the far reaching consequences on a person’s life; from communication challenges, to isolation, loneliness, increased risk of depression, mental health issues, cognitive decline and dementia.
Over the past thirty years, advancements in cochlear implant technology have changed the lives of many adults affected by a severe or profound hearing loss, giving them access to hearing in a real world setting, with improved health and quality of life outcomes. Yet this life changing technology is being under utilized for New Zealand adults.
Dates: 2nd November 2019
