Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the air. A festive spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you continue catching up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
Throughout the year, you spend as much time with friends and family as you can but it’s special when the holidays are here. You don’t want to miss a thing.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of those talking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
At one point during the festivities your niece and her husband have something important to announce. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. The noise in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Confusion and embarrassment overtakes you. You didn’t catch what your niece said. What just happened?
You want to ask somebody. Whatever it was, it’s important. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.
Asking people to repeat it never feels the same. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You later find out that your niece announced she’s pregnant.
If you’re dealing with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Get Ready For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that special meal and buying presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re planning zoom calls and getting your house decorated. Doing all this is significant to you.
But it isn’t as important as ensuring 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.
You Shouldn’t Wait – Here’s Why
We can immediately offer best treatments even if you only have moderate hearing loss.
Whatever you might be doing during the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. It becomes easier to hear what people are saying through all the background noise when you utilize a hearing device.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone also.
It’s always better to begin early. It takes a bit of time to become comfortable with some of these treatments. Getting treated right now means you’re ready when the family begins gathering – either online or at your home. Do not miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Stay in the loop this holiday. Call us for a hearing exam.
