I am 72-year-old and have been using hearing aid for last 3 years. Now the hearing aid also is not helpful, my hearing loss continues. Are there any other options/hearing aids available?

Get your hearing aid checked, Take an audiogram, If you are physically fit then you can go for COCHLEAR IMPLANT SURGERY.

Response from hearing aid depends on many factors- your current hearing level, quality of hearing aid, how well you have maintained it. I would advise first recheck your audiogram, if your hearing aid is programmable, get it reprogrammed as per your need, get it serviced/repaired. If any of this is not helpful, you need to go for new hearing aid, as per your listening needs.
