With one out of every five individuals in the United States struggling with some form of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at the least one person who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the potent connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social well-being, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to give a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are a couple of great gift ideas:
A Year’s Worth Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really takes pleasure in shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a requirement. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could take away the trouble and expense associated with the process of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to buy? Give us a call.
Customized Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of customized ear protection can protect against hearing injury and long-term hearing loss. And contrary to the cheap foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are especially constructed to control damaging sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound affiliated with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids demand periodic upkeep and cleaning to assure prolonged, maximum performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made a whole lot easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill hazardous pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove excessive moisture and prolong the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools incorporate a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not in use and can make transport easier.
Not certain which accessories you’ll need for a particular hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these products convert a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium headsets.
Streamers are devices that will acquire an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Are you aware that numerous hearing aid models can be managed with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a terrific gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. Along with compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly adjust hearing aid volume and can alter the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you want to go all-out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Admittedly, you can’t just venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and will require a hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to finally get the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a greater all-around quality of life.
And how many gifts can really accomplish that?
