Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting in the air. A joyous spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you continue catching up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.
You don’t want to miss any of this memorable occasion.
Are you ready?
Is There Anything You May be Missing?
You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are different. You don’t want to miss a moment.
But the voices of the people speaking around you frequently get drowned out by the din of background noise. You need to ask them to repeat themselves.
As the conversation continues on, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates 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. What just happened?
You want to take somebody aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But you feel embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.
Having someone repeat it never feels the same. And you don’t want to disrupt the cheering.
You later discover that your niece announced she is pregnant.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing loss.
Preparing For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that memorable meal and buying presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re arranging zoom calls and getting your home decorated. All of this is worthwhile.
But what’s most important is being able to have enjoyable conversation with friends and relatives.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate
We can immediately provide appropriate treatments even if you only have moderate hearing loss.
Whatever you may be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background sound, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.
Talking on the phone will then be crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best choice. 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 home. Be sure you don’t miss out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Keep yourself in the loop this holiday. Contact us for a hearing assessment.
