Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting through the air. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your house. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you continue catching up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are lively, 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 friends and family as you can but it’s special when the holidays are here. You don’t want to miss a thing.
But the voices of the people talking around you sometimes get drowned out by the din of background noise. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.
At one point during the celebrations your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everybody begins to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family celebrates, the volume in the room increases.
Confusion and embarrassment 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 missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
Asking people to repeat it never feels the same. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You find out later, after everybody else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re coping with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Prepping For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already bought 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 arranging zoom calls and getting your home decorated. Doing all this is significant to you.
But it isn’t as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with family and friends without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Hold Off
We can immediately offer appropriate treatments even if you only have mild hearing loss.
Whatever you might be doing during the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background noise, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone will then become crystal clear.
It’s always better to get started early. Some hearing treatments take a bit of time to get accustomed to. Getting treated right now means you’re prepared when the family begins gathering – either online or at your door. Make sure you don’t miss out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Keep yourself in the loop this holiday season. Contact us for a hearing test.
