The air filled with the sweet smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. Brightly colored lights of blue, red, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. You enjoy catching up with your family as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.
You don’t want to miss any of this joyous celebration.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You Might be Missing?
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 drowns out the voices of people speaking to you. 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. The volume in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Confusion and embarrassment overtakes you. You didn’t hear what your niece said. You don’t know what’s happening.
You want to ask somebody. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But you feel embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
It just isn’t the same when somebody has to repeat it. Everyone’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 going to have a baby.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you are dealing with hearing loss.
How to Plan For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You’ve never been one to wait until the last minute to get all of your shopping done.
You’re planning zoom calls and getting your home decorated. All of this is worthwhile.
But it’s not as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with friends and family without missing out on the conversation.
You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Wait – Here’s Why
Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can offer you correct solutions now.
Whatever you might be doing during the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background sound, having 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.
It’s always better to start early. Some hearing treatments take a little bit of time to get used to. This will assure 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 feel out of the loop during a major announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday. Schedule a hearing test today.
