Before The Holidays, Don’t Forget to do This

Woman packing a holiday gift into a box now that she has hearing aids.

The air filled with the pleasing smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. Brightly colored lights of blue, red, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. You love catching up with your family members as your grandchildren dance, sing and play.

You don’t want to miss any of this joyous celebration.

You’re so excited, you can’t wait.

Is There Anything You Might be Missing?

Throughout the year, you spend as much time with family and friends as you can but it’s special when the holidays are here. Every moment is cherished.

Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of those speaking to you. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.

As the conversation continues, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. Everybody at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. As the family celebrates, the noise in the room increases.

Your skin gets warm as a puzzled look spreads over your face. You didn’t catch what your niece said. You don’t know what’s happening.

You wish you could pull someone aside and find out what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.

Asking people to repeat it never has the same feeling. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.

You discover later, after everybody else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re going to have a baby.

You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing impairment.

Preparing For The Holidays

In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You’ve never been someone to wait until the last minute to get all of your shopping done.

You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. All of this is worthwhile.

But it’s not as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with family and friends without missing out on the conversation.

Don’t wait until the last minute to get your hearing tested.

Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate

We can immediately offer best treatments even if you only have mild hearing loss.

Whatever you might be doing during the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. It becomes easier to understand what people are saying through all the background noise when you use a hearing device.

You will be able to hear what people are saying on the phone also.

It’s always better to get started early. It takes a little time to become comfortable with some of these solutions. This will make sure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to get together. Make sure you don’t miss out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.

Don’t get shut out this holiday. Call us for a hearing test.
