A cochlear implant is a very expensive and extensive operation and at his age i wouldn't recommend it. If he still has some hair cell functioning left, it would be good for him to persist with hearing aids. If he is not getting satisfactory results from his hearing aids, he might need to be retested and maybe upgraded with his hearing aids.
