How to help - or ask for help - after a life-changing event.
Swedish Medical Center, based not in Sweden, as you might have thought, but in Seattle, WA, USA, does a lot of cochlear implants. They have turned up on my radar as a great resource. In this blog post, they explain how to help or ask for help after any life-changing event. (As going deaf certainly is.) It's worth a read and covers a lot of situations where you, or a friend or family member of yours, is going through a life-changing event, from the happy arrival of a new baby or the crushing news of a terminal diagnosis. It's good advice.
