Yes, cochlear implant maybe of help to her. I assume she has progressive hearing loss since the problem is last 4 years. Cochlear implant will help people in whom hearing aids do not help.Patients upto 80 years have been doing good with the implant, your mother's age is quite appropriate.
Next Steps
She needs to visit an ENT doctor.
