The air filled with the sweet smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. A joyous spirit and green, red, 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 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 much meaningful time as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are special. Every moment is cherished.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of people talking to you. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.
As the conversation continues, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. After they finish speaking, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. The noise in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You didn’t catch what your niece said. What just happened?
You wish you could pull somebody aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s important. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
Asking people to repeat it never has the same feeling. And you don’t want to disrupt the cheering.
You later discover, after everybody else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re struggling with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Prepping 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 planning zoom calls and getting your home decorated. Doing all this is important to you.
But what’s most important is being able to have enjoyable conversation with friends and family.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
We can immediately offer appropriate treatments even if you only have mild hearing loss.
These solutions can help you hear more clearly during the holidays, on calls, or at the store. When there’s lots of background sound, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone also.
It’s always better to start early. Some hearing solutions take a little bit of time to get accustomed to. This will assure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to get together. Ensure that you don’t miss out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during a major announcement.
Remain in the loop this holiday season. Schedule a hearing assessment today.
