Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the air. Colorful lights of red, blue, and green fill your home with a joyful spirit. You love 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 thing.
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 friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are special. Every second is precious.
Yet the drone of background noise occasionally overwhelms the voices of people speaking to you. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.
At one point during the celebrations your niece and her husband have something important to announce. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. The noise in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads over your face. You missed the announcement. You don’t know what’s going on.
You want to take somebody aside and find out what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But missing it the first time is embarrassing.
Asking people to repeat it never feels the same. 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 having a baby.
If you’re coping with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Plan For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that memorable meal and getting presents in anticipation. You’ve never been someone to wait until the last moment to get all of your shopping done.
You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. Doing all this is important to you.
But it isn’t as important as making sure 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 Hold Off
Even if you have moderate hearing loss, we can offer you appropriate treatments now.
These treatments can help you hear better around the holidays, on calls, or at the store. When there’s lots of background sound, 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.
Starting early is always the best choice. 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 get together. Do not miss a moment of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday. Call us for a hearing test.
