The air filled with the pleasing smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. Brightly colored lights of blue, red, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you continue catching up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
You don’t want to miss any of this memorable occasion.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You Might be Missing?
You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with family and friends all year, but the holidays are special. Every second is cherished.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of people speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
As the conversation continues on, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. After they finish speaking, everyone begins to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family celebrates, the noise in the room gets louder.
Your skin gets warm as a puzzled look spreads over your face. You didn’t hear the announcement. What just happened?
You want to ask someone. It seems as if it was an important announcement. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
Asking people to repeat it never has the same feeling. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to interrupt.
You later find out, after everyone else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re coping with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Plan For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You’ve never been one to wait until the last moment to get all of your shopping done.
You’re decorating your home and planning zoom calls. Doing all this is significant to you.
But it’s not as important as making sure that you get to enjoy this holiday with family and friends without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Wait – Here’s Why
We can immediately offer best solutions even if you only have moderate hearing loss.
Whatever you may be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. It becomes easier to hear what people are saying through all the background noise when you utilize a hearing device.
Phone calls will then be crystal clear.
Getting started early is always the best bet. It takes a little time to become confident with some of these treatments. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family starts gathering – either online or at your home. Do not 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 exam.
