Nassau County Council on Aging’s (NCCOA’s) next meeting of the Hearing Loss Support Group is on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 12 noon – 1:30 p.m., at the Janice Ancrum Senior Life Center, 1901 Island Walk Way in Fernandina Beach.
At the meeting, John Bertsch will share his experience with cochlear implants.
Cochlear implants are designed for people with severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss. With this type of hearing loss, the hair cells in the inner ear are damaged and can’t detect sounds properly. A cochlear implant bypasses these damaged hair cells and sends electric signals to the brain, where they are interpreted as sound.
All are welcome! If you have any questions, please contact Frances Bartelt, NCCOA Volunteer Coordinator, 904-775-5484 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
