The air filled with the sweet smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. A joyous spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your house. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you catch up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a thing.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
Throughout the year, you spend as much time with family and friends as you can but it’s special when the holidays come. You don’t want to miss a moment.
But the voices of the people talking around you frequently get drowned out by the din of background noise. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
At one point during the festivities your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everyone begins to celebrate and congratulate them. The noise in the room rises as the family starts to cheer.
Your skin feels warm as a confused look spreads over your face. You missed the announcement. What just happened?
You want to ask somebody. It seems like it was a significant announcement. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.
Having someone repeat it never has the same feeling. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.
You later find out that your niece announced she’s pregnant.
If you’re coping with untreated 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 someone to wait until the last moment to get all of your shopping done.
You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. All of this is important.
But it’s not as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with friends and family without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Procrastinate – Here’s Why
We can immediately offer best treatments even if you only have mild hearing loss.
Whatever you might be doing during the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background sound, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone will then become crystal clear.
Starting early is always the best bet. Some hearing solutions take a little time to get accustomed to. This will make sure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to get together. 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.
