Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting in the air. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren singing, dancing, 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 thing.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You Might be Missing?
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 moment is precious.
Yet the drone of background noise occasionally drowns out the voices of people speaking 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. After they finish speaking, everyone begins to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family celebrates, the volume in the room increases.
Your skin feels warm as a confused look spreads across your face. You missed the announcement. You don’t know what’s going on.
You want to ask somebody. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But you feel embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
It’s just not the same when somebody has to repeat it. And you don’t want to disrupt the cheering.
You later discover, after everybody else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re going to have a baby.
If you’re struggling with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Plan For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You usually get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re planning zoom calls and getting your house decorated. All of this is worthwhile.
But it isn’t as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with friends and family without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
You Shouldn’t Procrastinate – Here’s Why
Even if you have slight hearing loss, we can help you with appropriate solutions now.
Whatever you may be doing during the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. It becomes easier to hear what people are saying through all the background noise when you use a hearing device.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone also.
Getting started early is always the best choice. It takes a little bit of time to become comfortable with some of these treatments. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family starts gathering – either online or at your home. Make sure you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday. Call us for a hearing assessment.
