Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the air. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. You love catching up with your family as your grandchildren dance, sing and play.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
You’re so excited, you can’t wait.
Is There Anything You Might be Missing?
You try to spend as many meaningful moments as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are special. Every second is precious.
Yet the drone of background noise often drowns out the voices of people talking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
At one point during the celebrations your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family cheers, the volume in the room gets louder.
Your skin feels warm as a confused look spreads across your face. You didn’t hear what your niece said. You don’t know what’s going on.
You want to pull somebody aside and learn what you missed. 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 discover later, after everyone else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re dealing with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Plan For The Holidays
You’re already planning that memorable meal and purchasing presents in anticipation. You usually get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.
You’re decorating your house and planning zoom calls. All of this is worthwhile.
But it’s not as important as making sure 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 Procrastinate
Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can help you with correct solutions now.
Whatever you may be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background sound, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.
You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone as well.
It’s always better to get started early. It takes a little time to become confident with some of these treatments. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family starts gathering – either online or at your door. Do not miss a second of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during a major announcement.
