Have you watched the videos on YouTube? After being fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. You may find yourself crying tears of joy when you see the smile on his face.
Videos like this one are numerous online. You can share that wonderful moment with the child, the parents, and their doctors.
The baby doesn’t always like the idea of having hearing aids put in initially. They struggle when the doctor attempts to put the device on their ear. Sometimes, before they smile with joy, they cry. They are overwhelmed by a range of emotions. They’re not certain what’s going on. But then, with restored hearing, the world opens up for them.
This joy that they’re feeling can be a reality for anybody.
Does the idea of using hearing aids make you apprehensive? You’re not alone. You don’t have to be a child to be a little wary of this new experience.
People of any age can have the joy and happiness that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You may not even know. It developed so gradually. You quit listening to music. It just didn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. Sometimes, it was even grating. It got even worse when you turned up the volume.
Hearing loss doesn’t just impact the volume you can hear. It effects how you hear different pitches and tones.
Every musician is aware that the notes flow together to make an integrated sound that resonates as waves go into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
But put on your hearing aid. All of a sudden you can hear those once silent tones. The power of music is back in your life. You had lost that joy in your life, but now you have it back.
A Child’s Laughter
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? Perhaps your hearing loss has caused you to forget this amazing experience.
Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your yard? If you go for a walk in the park there will be hundreds. You never recognized how much you enjoyed their chirps until they were gone.
But the birds aren’t gone. These joyful sounds of nature once greatly enhanced your life, but now you can’t hear them because of your hearing impairment.
But when you wear your hearing aids those wonderful sounds of nature come back to enhance your life once more.
Untreated hearing impairment can put significant strain on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. They do not understand. They tend to argue more. Sometimes, so they don’t feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into seclusion.
They might steer clear of social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Are hobbies you once enjoyed less enjoyable now so you’ve given them up?
Your relationship with friends and family will be renewed by the basic act of wearing hearing aids.
Learn to speak with each other again. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Confidence That You’re Safe in Your Home
Do you feel stressed about what you can’t hear? Could you hear the voice of an injured family member yelling to you from the other room? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm…would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important call because you didn’t hear it ring?
When you walk around the neighborhood, are you certain that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
There are places where we should feel completely safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But you can feel more comfortable and enjoy life more when you use your hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.
You Most Likely Don’t Even Know How Much You’re Missing
In most instances, hearing loss advances gradually. It’s possible that you don’t even remember how much you took pleasure in things before your hearing started to decline.
You’ll be amazed when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Get it looked at. Call us to schedule a hearing exam.
