The air filled with the pleasing smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your house. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you catch up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
Are you ready?
Are You Missing Something?
Throughout the year, you spend as much time with family and friends as you can but it’s special when the holidays come. Every moment is precious.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes overwhelms the voices of those talking to you. You need to ask them to repeat themselves.
At one point during the celebrations your niece and her husband have something important to announce. Everybody at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. As the family celebrates, the volume in the room increases.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You didn’t hear what your niece said. What just happened?
You want to ask someone. Whatever it was, it’s important. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
It just isn’t the same when someone has to repeat it. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to interrupt.
You later find out, after everybody else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re going to have a baby.
If you’re coping with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Plan For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that memorable meal and purchasing presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re decorating your home and planning zoom calls. All of this is important.
But it’s not as important as making sure 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 have a hearing test.
You Shouldn’t Wait – Here’s Why
We can immediately offer appropriate solutions even if you only have minor hearing loss.
These treatments can help you hear more clearly around the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery store. It becomes easier to hear 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 as well.
It’s always better to start early. It takes a little time to become confident with some of these solutions. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family begins gathering – either online or at your home. Do not miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during a major announcement.
Remain in the loop this holiday season. Contact us for a hearing test.
