What Happens At A Cochlear Implant Chat & Share Meeting?
The Cochlear Implant group is a very welcoming and supportive group of people who have, or who are thinking about a cochlear implant. Family members are also welcome to attend.
“We are not medical professionals, just people with cochlear implants or thinking about getting them, and we help each other based on our own personal experiences. This group is a welcome opportunity to share our hearing successes and challenges with others who use CI technology to hear. It is also an opportunity to meet people who are considering having an implant. Our meetings are very informal with captioning available. We have an amazing group of individuals who are very willing to support and encourage new people in their quest for better hearing. Family members and friends of CI candidates and those already implanted are welcome to attend. They often already have lots of ideas and suggestions about how to support their family member. They also often get a new perspective on hearing loss and how CI technology works, its possibilities and its limitations.” – Noreen, Group Leader
