Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the air. A festive spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your home. You enjoy catching up with your family members as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.
You don’t want to miss any of this joyous occasion.
You’re so excited, 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 precious.
But the voices of the people speaking around you frequently get lost under the din of background noise. You need to ask them to repeat themselves.
At one point during the celebrations your niece and her husband have something important to announce. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. The volume in the room rises as the family starts to cheer.
Your skin feels warm as a confused look spreads over your face. You missed the announcement. You don’t know what’s happening.
You want to take someone aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s important. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.
It’s just not the same when somebody has to repeat it. And you don’t want to disrupt the cheering.
You later find out that your niece announced she is pregnant.
If you’re struggling with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Prepping For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already bought 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 out zoom calls. Doing all this is important to you.
But what’s most important is being able to have enjoyable conversation with friends and family.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
Even if you have moderate hearing loss, we can offer you appropriate solutions now.
These solutions can help you hear more clearly during the holidays, on calls, or at the supermarket. When there’s lots of background sound, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone will then be crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best bet. It takes a little time to become comfortable with some of these treatments. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family begins gathering – either online or at your home. Don’t 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. Contact us for a hearing test.
