Before The Holidays, Remember to do This

Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting through the air. Brightly colored lights of red, blue, and green fill your house with a festive spirit. You enjoy catching up with your family members as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.

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

You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.

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 come. Every moment is cherished.

But the voices of the people speaking around you often get drowned out by the din of background noise. You often 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, everybody begins to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family celebrates, the noise in the room increases.

Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You didn’t hear the announcement. You don’t know what’s happening.

You want to take somebody aside and learn what you missed. It seems as if it was an important announcement. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.

Having someone repeat it never feels the same. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to interrupt.

You later discover, 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 Get Ready For The Holidays

In anticipation, you’ve already bought presents and planned that big meal. You usually get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.

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

But what’s most important is being able to have meaningful conversation with friends and family.

You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.

Why You Shouldn’t Hold Off

We can immediately offer best treatments even if you only have mild hearing loss.

These solutions can help you hear better around the holidays, on calls, or at the supermarket. It becomes easier to hear what people are saying through all the background noise when you use a hearing device.

Talking on the phone will then be crystal clear.

It’s always better to begin early. Some hearing treatments take a bit of time to get accustomed to. This will assure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to gather. Don’t miss a moment of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.

Remain in the loop this holiday season. Contact us for a hearing assessment.
