Before The Holidays, Don’t Forget to do This

Woman packing a holiday gift into a box now that she has hearing aids.

Nutmeg and cinnamon wafting in the air. A joyous spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your house. Grandchildren singing, dancing, and playing as you continue catching up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.

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?

Throughout the year, you spend as much time with family and friends as you can but it’s special when the holidays come. Every moment is precious.

Yet the drone of background noise sometimes overwhelms the voices of those speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.

As the conversation continues on, 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. What just happened?

You wish you could take somebody aside and find out what you missed. It seems as if it was a significant announcement. But missing it the first time is embarrassing.

Having someone repeat it never feels the same. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.

You discover later, after everyone else, that your niece went to the doctor this week. They’re having a baby.

If you’re coping with neglected hearing loss, who knows what you’ll miss this holiday season.

How to Get Ready For The Holidays

You’re already planning that memorable meal and buying presents in anticipation. You usually get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.

You’re arranging zoom calls and getting your house decorated. Doing all this is significant to you.

But what’s most important is being able to have meaningful conversation with friends and relatives.

Don’t wait until the last minute to have a hearing test.
