Before The Holidays, Remember to do This

Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the air. A joyous spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your house. You enjoy catching up with your family members as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.

The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a beat.

You’re so excited, you can’t wait.

Are You Missing Something?

You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are different. You don’t want to miss a moment.

Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of those speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.

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. As the family cheers, the volume in the room gets louder.

Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads across your face. You didn’t hear the announcement. What just happened?

You want to ask someone. It seems as if it was a significant announcement. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.

Asking people to repeat it never feels the same. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.

You find out later, after everybody else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re going to have 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

In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You’ve never been someone to wait until the last minute to get all of your shopping done.

You’re decorating your home and planning zoom calls. All of this is important.

But it isn’t as important as ensuring 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.

You Shouldn’t Wait – Here’s Why

Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can offer you appropriate treatments now.

These treatments can help you hear more clearly during the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery store. When there’s lots of background sound, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.

You will be able to hear what people are saying on the phone as well.

Getting started early is always the best bet. It takes a little time to become confident with some of these treatments. This will make sure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to gather. Ensure that you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
