Outcomes in Older Adults

Outcomes in Older Adults: There are no “age limits” for cochlear implantation in older adults. Cochlear implants support cognitive health and have been shown to improve quality of life in people of all ages. A growing number of Medicare beneficiaries are pursuing cochlear implants as their hearing worsens due to hereditary conditions, aging, noise exposure or disease. Removing the isolation that hearing loss can cause allows older adults to remain active in family and community activities.

The following presentations were given during CI2016, Toronto and include the following topics: quality of life, cognitive performance, co-morbidities, implantation ear criteria and outcomes. 

The mission of the American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is to advance access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy and awareness.
