The air filled with the pleasing smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. You enjoy catching up with your family members as your grandchildren dance, sing and play.
The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You Might be Missing?
You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are special. Every moment is cherished.
Yet the drone of background noise often overwhelms the voices of those speaking to you. You need to ask them to repeat themselves.
At one point during the festivities your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everyone starts to celebrate and congratulate them. The volume in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Confusion and embarrassment overtakes you. You didn’t catch what your niece said. You don’t know what’s happening.
You wish you could pull somebody aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s important. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
It’s just not the same when someone has to repeat it. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.
You later find out, after everyone else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re going to have a baby.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing loss.
How to Get Ready For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already bought presents and planned that big meal. You typically get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. All of this is important.
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 have your hearing tested sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
We can immediately offer proper solutions even if you only have minor hearing loss.
Whatever you may be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. It becomes easier to understand what people are saying through all the background noise when you use a hearing device.
You will be able to hear what people are saying on the phone as well.
Starting early is always the best choice. Some hearing treatments take a little time to get used to. This will assure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to gather. Don’t miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday season. Call us for a hearing exam.
