With one out of every five individuals in the United States struggling with some degree of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at the least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the potent connections between healthy hearing and physical, emotional, 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 number of excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who actually likes shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, making them a requirement. By providing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can remove the responsibility and expense associated with the chore of managing the supply.
Not sure which hearing aid batteries to order? Give us a call.
Custom Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of specialty ear protection could reduce the risk of hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And unlike the inexpensive foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially built to reduce detrimental sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This gets rid of the “muffled” sound caused by foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids demand periodic upkeep and cleaning to assure lasting, maximum performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers make use of ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill dangerous pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove excess moisture and increase the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools feature 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 being used and can make transport easier.
Uncertain of which accessories you’ll need for a particular hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of top-quality earphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will acquire an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Are you aware that several hearing aid models can be operated with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a fantastic gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly adjust hearing aid volume and can alter the settings right from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you feel like going 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 person’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could prompt someone to finally buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a greater all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
