The air filled with the sweet smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you continue catching up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.
The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
Throughout the year, you spend as much time with family and friends as you can but it’s special when the holidays are here. Every moment is cherished.
Yet the drone of background noise occasionally drowns out the voices of those speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
As the conversation continues, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. After they finish speaking, everyone starts to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family cheers, the noise in the room increases.
Your skin feels warm as a puzzled look spreads across your face. You didn’t hear the announcement. You don’t know what’s happening.
You want to ask somebody. It seems like it was a significant announcement. 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. And you don’t want to interrupt 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
In anticipation, you’ve already bought 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 house decorated. Doing all this is important to you.
But what’s most important is being able to have enjoyable conversation with friends and relatives.
You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Procrastinate – Here’s Why
We can immediately offer proper treatments even if you only have minor hearing loss.
These treatments can help you hear better during the holidays, on calls, or at the supermarket. 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 become crystal clear.
It’s always better to get started early. Some hearing solutions 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 gather. Do not miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Keep yourself in the loop this holiday. Call us for a hearing exam.
