Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting in the air. A joyous spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your house. You love catching up with your family as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.
You don’t want to miss any of this memorable celebration.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with family and friends all year, but the holidays are different. You don’t want to miss a thing.
But the voices of the people speaking around you sometimes get lost under the din of background noise. You often need to have them repeat what they said.
At one point during the celebrations your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everyone begins to celebrate and congratulate them. The volume in the room rises as the family starts to cheer.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You missed the announcement. You don’t know what’s happening.
You want to take somebody aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But missing it the first time is embarrassing.
Having someone repeat it never has the same feeling. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You later discover that your niece announced she’s pregnant.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing impairment.
Preparing 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. Doing all this is important to you.
But it isn’t as important as making sure 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 provide appropriate solutions even if you only have minor hearing loss.
Whatever you might be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background noise, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.
Phone calls will then become crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best choice. It takes a little bit of time to become comfortable with some of these treatments. This will make sure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to get together. Do not miss a moment of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Stay in the loop this holiday season. Schedule a hearing assessment now.
