Before The Holidays, Remember to do This

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

Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting in the air. A joyous spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you catch up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.

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

You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.

Is There Anything You May be Missing?

You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with friends and family all year, but the holidays are different. You don’t want to miss a thing.

Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of those speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.

At one point during the festivities your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everyone starts to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family cheers, the noise in the room increases.

Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads over your face. You didn’t hear what your niece said. What just happened?

You want to pull someone aside and find out what you missed. It seems like it was an important announcement. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.

Having someone repeat it never feels the same. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.

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

If you’re struggling with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.

Preparing For The Holidays

You’re already organizing that memorable meal and getting presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.

You’re arranging zoom calls and getting your house decorated. All of this is worthwhile.

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

You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.

Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate

Even if you have slight hearing loss, we can help you with correct treatments now.

Whatever you may be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background noise, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.

Phone calls will then become crystal clear.

It’s always better to start early. Some hearing solutions take a little time to get used to. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family begins gathering – either online or at your door. Make sure you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during a major announcement.

Stay in the loop this holiday. Call us for a hearing test.
