The air filled with the pleasing smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A joyous spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. You enjoy catching up with your family members as your grandchildren dance, sing and play.
The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a thing.
Are you ready?
Is There Anything You May 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. You don’t want to miss a moment.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes overwhelms the voices of people talking 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, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. The noise in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You didn’t catch what your niece said. You don’t know what’s going on.
You want to ask someone. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But missing it the first time is embarrassing.
Asking people to repeat it never feels the same. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to interrupt.
You later discover, after everyone else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing impairment.
How to Plan For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You usually get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re arranging zoom calls and getting your home decorated. All of this is important.
But what’s most important is being able to have enjoyable conversation with friends and family.
Don’t wait until the last minute to have a hearing test.
Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate
We can immediately offer appropriate treatments even if you only have moderate hearing loss.
These treatments can help you hear more clearly during the holidays, on calls, or at the supermarket. When there’s lots of background sound, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone also.
Starting early is always the best bet. It takes a bit of time to become comfortable with some of these solutions. Getting treated right now means you’re prepared when the family begins gathering – either online or at your home. Ensure that 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 season. Call us for a hearing test.
