A senior woman embracing her granddaughter and laughing. They are wearing casual clothing and are sitting in a garden at a baby shower.

You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain initially. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They might cry before they smile with delight. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for people watching them.

But this life-changing moment could occur for anyone.

If you’re feeling concerned about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling rather anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s explore how people of any age may cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.

The sweet sound of music

You might not have even noticed it. It advanced so slowly. You quit listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even aggravates you at times. And the louder it gets the more annoying it becomes.

It’s not just volume that is effected by hearing loss. It affects how you hear different tones and notes.
Music is made of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then picked up by your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.

When you wear your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-silent tones. Music once more comes to life! It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.

A child’s laughter

Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.

Repaired relationships

Untreated hearing loss can put a significant strain on relationships. People get irritated. They tend to argue more. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.

They might stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others are chatting.

Hobbies less satisfying so you’ve given many of them up?

Your relationships with your children, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Restore your ability to speak with each other. Engage in long talks. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.

It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.

You feel more secure at home

Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from another room? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?

Do you worry that you won’t be able to hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?

When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, hearing loss can make us feel quite uneasy. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more confident, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.

It’s likely you don’t realize how much you’re missing

You might not even be aware of what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most instances, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. You might simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.

When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you might have some degree of hearing loss? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing assessment and find out what you’ve been missing.
