Cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutmeg wafting through the air. Colorful lights of blue, red, and green fill your home with a festive spirit. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you continue catching up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.
The holidays are lively, and you don’t want to miss a beat.
The holidays are coming! Are you ready?
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 different. You don’t want to miss a moment.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of those speaking to you. You have to ask them to repeat themselves.
As the conversation continues, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. The volume in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Your skin feels warm as a puzzled look spreads across your face. You didn’t catch what your niece said. What just happened?
You want to ask someone. Whatever it was, it’s important. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t hear it the first time.
Asking people to repeat it never has the same feeling. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You later find out, after everyone else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.
If you’re struggling with untreated hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to get ready for the holidays
You’re already planning that special meal and buying presents in anticipation. You’ve never been one to wait until the last minute to get all of your shopping done.
You’re decorating your home and planning out zoom calls. All of this is important.
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.
Don’t wait until the last minute to get a hearing test.
Why you shouldn’t wait
Even if you have mild hearing loss, a hearing specialist can offer you appropriate solutions now.
These solutions can help you hear more clearly around the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery. When there’s lots of background noise, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand those around you.
Talking on the phone often becomes crystal clear.
It’s always better to start early. Some hearing solutions take a little time to get used to. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family starts gathering – either online or at your door. Do not miss a moment of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during an important announcement.
Don’t get shut out this holiday season. Schedule a hearing test today.
