Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting in the air. Colorful lights of red, blue, and green fill your home with a festive spirit. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you continue catching up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
Are you ready?
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 second is precious.
Yet the drone of background noise often overwhelms the voices of people speaking to you. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.
As the conversation continues on, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. After they finish speaking, everyone begins to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family celebrates, the volume in the room increases.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You missed the announcement. What just happened?
You want to ask someone. 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 find out, after everybody else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re struggling with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Get Ready 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 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 relatives.
You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
We can immediately provide proper solutions even if you only have moderate hearing loss.
Whatever you might be doing around the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. It becomes easier to hear what people are saying through all the background noise when you use a hearing device.
Phone calls will then be crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best choice. It takes a little time to become comfortable with some of these treatments. Getting treated right now means you’re prepared when the family begins gathering – either online or at your door. Make sure you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Stay in the loop this holiday season. Call us for a hearing test.
