Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the air. Colorful lights of red, blue, and green fill your home with a joyful spirit. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you catch up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.
You don’t want to miss any of this joyous occasion.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with family and friends throughout the year, but the holidays are special. You don’t want to miss a thing.
But the voices of the people speaking around you frequently get drowned out by the din of background noise. You often need to have them repeat what they said.
As the conversation goes on, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. After they finish speaking, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family cheers, the volume in the room gets louder.
Embarrassment and confusion overtakes you. You missed the announcement. What just happened?
You wish you could pull someone aside and learn what you missed. It seems like it was an important announcement. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.
It’s just not the same when somebody has to repeat it. Everyone’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.
You later discover that your niece announced she’s pregnant.
If you’re dealing with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
Prepping For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already bought presents and planned that big meal. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re decorating your home and planning out zoom calls. Doing all this is important to you.
But it’s not as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with family and friends without missing out on the conversation.
You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
Even if you have moderate hearing loss, we can help you with appropriate solutions now.
These solutions can help you hear better around the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery store. When there’s lots of background noise, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone will then be crystal clear.
It’s always better to start early. It takes a little bit of time to become confident with some of these solutions. Getting treated now means you’re prepared when the family begins gathering – either online or at your home. Do not miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during a major announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday season. Call us for a hearing test.
