The air filled with the pleasing smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. Colorful lights of red, blue, and green fill your home with a joyful spirit. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you continue catching up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.
You don’t want to miss any of this joyous celebration.
Are you ready?
Are You Missing Something?
Throughout the year, you spend as much time with friends and family as you can but it’s special when the holidays are here. You don’t want to miss a moment.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes overwhelms the voices of those speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
As the conversation continues, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. The noise in the room rises as the family begins 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 want to ask somebody. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But you feel embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
Having someone repeat it never feels the same. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.
You discover later, after everybody else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you are dealing with hearing impairment.
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 minute to get all of your shopping done.
You’re arranging zoom calls and getting your home decorated. All of this is worthwhile.
But what’s most important is being able to have meaningful conversation with friends and relatives.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Hold Off
We can immediately provide appropriate solutions even if you only have minor hearing loss.
These solutions can help you hear better around the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery store. When there’s lots of background noise, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone will then be crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best choice. Some hearing solutions take a little time to get used to. Getting treated right now means you’re ready when the family begins gathering – either online or at your door. Ensure that you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Keep yourself in the loop this holiday. Schedule a hearing assessment today.
