MED-EL Candidates and Candidate Caregivers

Candidates and Candidate Caregivers

Have you or your child been diagnosed with a hearing loss? Do you want to talk to someone to better understand what to expect? Our team of hearing professionals can walk you through the process and answer any question you may have. 

Here are a few that they're an expert on.

  • Can you connect me to someone in my community who experienced a similar hearing loss?
  • Can you tell me if I can play sports or swim with your device?
  • Can you help me understand connectivity and how I'll learn to talk on the phone again? 
  • Can you help me understand what all rehabilitation entails and what the road ahead looks like post-surgery?
  • What's the average time MED-EL recipients take to comfortably go back to their favorite restaurant? 

We have people waiting to support you through your unique journey, from diagnosis to activation and beyond. Let us answer your questions so you can start your journey to better hearing. 

Helping you understand what to expect is what we are hear for.

MED-EL HearPeers Caregiver Community

 

Recipient Caregivers

While recipients need support, we recognize their caregivers need support too. HearPeers is for you too! We know you grieved at your loved one's loss of hearing and then found hope in a hearing device. You are not alone in that feeling and are probably still feeling uncertain of the future. 

There are so many families who think they have to go through this alone, not knowing there is a much larger hearing loss community at the touch of their fingertips. Talk to other moms, dads, daughters, sons, spouses, and significant others who have all gone through similar emotions and challenges. Celebrate small wins with them and allow them to share their experiences with you. 

You never know how someone else's story can impact you.
