The air filled with the sweet smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you continue catching up with your brother, sister, cousins, and children.
The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a thing.
You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.
Are You Missing Something?
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 second is cherished.
But the voices of the people speaking around you sometimes get lost under the din of background noise. You need 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. As the family cheers, the volume in the room gets louder.
Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads over your face. You didn’t catch what your niece said. You don’t know what’s happening.
You wish you could take somebody aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But missing it the first time is embarrassing.
It’s just not the same when somebody has to repeat it. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You later discover, after everyone else, that your niece saw the doctor this week. They’re going to have a baby.
If you’re dealing with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.
How to Get Ready For The Holidays
In anticipation, you’ve already purchased presents and planned that big meal. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. Doing all this is significant 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.
Don’t wait until the last minute to have your hearing tested.
Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate
Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can offer you correct treatments now.
Whatever you may be doing around the holiday, these treatments will help you hear better. It becomes easier to understand 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 as well.
Getting started early is always the best choice. Some hearing solutions take a little bit of time to get accustomed to. This will make sure that you are ready when it’s time for your family to get together. Don’t miss a moment of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t feel out of the loop during a major announcement.
