The air filled with the sweet smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. Brightly colored lights of blue, red, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. You enjoy catching up with your family as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.
The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
Are you ready?
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 come. You don’t want to miss a moment.
Yet the drone of background noise often drowns out the voices of people 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. After they finish speaking, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. The noise in the room rises as the family starts to cheer.
Confusion and embarrassment overtakes you. You didn’t hear what your niece said. What just happened?
You want to pull somebody aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s important. But missing it the first time is embarrassing.
Asking people to repeat it never has the same feeling. And you don’t want to disrupt the cheering.
You later find out, after everyone else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re going to have a baby.
If you’re struggling with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Preparing For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already bought presents and planned that big meal. You usually get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re decorating your home and planning zoom calls. All of this is worthwhile.
But it isn’t as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with friends and family without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Procrastinate – Here’s Why
Even if you have slight hearing loss, we can offer you appropriate solutions now.
Whatever you may 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.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone as well.
It’s always better to begin early. It takes a little time to become comfortable with some of these treatments. Getting treated right now means you’re ready when the family starts gathering – either online or at your door. Don’t miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday season. Call us for a hearing assessment.
