With one out of every five individuals in the US suffering from some degree of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at the least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And bearing in mind the potent links amongst healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideally suited chance to provide an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a number of great gift ideas:
A Year’s Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely looks forward to shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a requirement. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can get rid of the trouble and expense connected with the task of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to buy? Give us a call.
Personalized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of customized ear protection could protect against hearing injury and long-term hearing loss. And unlike the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly constructed to control destructive sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound associated with foam earplugs.
Talk to us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids will require routine upkeep and cleaning to ensure lasting, optimum performance. And although this can’t be avoided, it can be made quite a bit easier.
Here are a few gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill harmful pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers clear away excessive moisture and lengthen the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools consist of a magnet for battery removal in addition to other tools to clean the assorted parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not being used and can make transport more convenient.
Not sure which accessories you’ll need for a specific hearing aid? Talk to us and we’ll help you find the right products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these products convert a pair of hearing aids into a pair of high-quality earphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will detect an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will send the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be controlled with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a terrific gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. With compatible hearing aids, you can subtly adjust hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings right from the portable device.
This is one function that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you want to go all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Keep in mind, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to at long last buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a greater overall quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
