Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting through the air. Colorful lights of red, blue, and green fill your home with a festive spirit. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you continue catching up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
You don’t want to miss any of this memorable occasion.
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 are here. Every second is precious.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes overwhelms the voices of people talking to you. 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. Everybody at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. As the family celebrates, the noise in the room gets louder.
Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads over your face. You missed the announcement. You don’t know what’s happening.
You wish you could take somebody aside and find out what you missed. It seems like it was an important announcement. But you feel embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
It’s just not the same when someone has to repeat it. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to interrupt.
You later discover, after everyone else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re coping with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Preparing For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You typically get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. All of this is worthwhile.
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.
Don’t wait until the last minute to have your hearing tested.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can offer you appropriate treatments now.
These treatments can help you hear better around the holidays, on calls, or at the supermarket. When there’s lots of background noise, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.
Talking on the phone will then become crystal clear.
It’s always better to get started early. Some hearing solutions take a little time to get accustomed to. Getting treated now means you’re prepared when the family starts gathering – either online or at your home. Make sure you don’t miss out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Remain in the loop this holiday. Schedule a hearing assessment now.
