The air filled with the pleasing smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A joyous 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.
You don’t want to miss any of this memorable occasion.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You May be Missing?
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 moment.
Yet the drone of background noise often 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 volume in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Your skin gets warm as a puzzled look spreads across your face. You missed the announcement. What just happened?
You wish you could take someone aside and find out what you missed. It seems like it was a significant announcement. 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 saw the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you are dealing with hearing impairment.
How to Get Ready For The Holidays
You’re already planning that special meal and getting presents in anticipation. You’ve never been one to wait until the last minute to get all of your shopping done.
You’re decorating your home and planning zoom calls. All of this is important.
But what’s most important is being able to have meaningful conversation with friends and family.
Don’t wait until the last minute to have your hearing tested.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can help you with correct treatments now.
These treatments can help you hear more clearly around the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery store. When there’s lots of background sound, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone will then become crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best bet. It takes a little 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 lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Remain in the loop this holiday. Call us for a hearing assessment.
