The air filled with the sweet smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A joyous spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your house. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you catch up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You May be Missing?
You try to spend as much meaningful time as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are different. You don’t want to miss a moment.
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.
As the conversation continues on, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. As the family celebrates, the noise in the room gets louder.
Your skin feels warm as a puzzled look spreads over your face. You missed the announcement. What just happened?
You want to take somebody aside and find out what you missed. It seems like it was an important announcement. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
Having someone repeat it never feels the same. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You later discover, after everyone else, that your niece went to 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 bought presents and planned that big meal. You typically get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re decorating your house and planning 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 friends and family without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait
We can immediately offer best solutions 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. It becomes easier to understand what people are saying through all the background noise when you use a hearing device.
Talking on the phone will then be crystal clear.
Getting started early is always the best choice. Some hearing solutions take a little 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 lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
