Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting through the air. Colorful lights of blue, red, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you catch up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
You don’t want to miss any of this joyous celebration.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You Might be Missing?
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 second is precious.
But the voices of the people speaking around you often get drowned out by the din of background noise. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.
As the conversation goes on, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. 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 across your face. You didn’t catch what your niece said. What just happened?
You wish you could take someone aside and find out what you missed. It seems like it was a significant announcement. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
It’s just not the same when someone has to repeat it. Everyone’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.
Preparing For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that special meal and purchasing presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re planning zoom calls and getting your home decorated. All of this is important.
But what’s most important is being able to have enjoyable conversation with friends and family.
You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate
We can immediately offer appropriate solutions even if you only have minor hearing loss.
Whatever you may be doing during the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background noise, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone also.
Getting started early is always the best bet. It takes a bit of time to become confident with some of these solutions. This will assure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to gather. Ensure that you don’t miss out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday. Schedule a hearing examination today.
