The air filled with the sweet smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. 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 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 are here. You don’t want to miss a thing.
Yet the drone of background noise sometimes drowns out the voices of those speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.
As the conversation continues, your youngest niece and her husband make an important announcement. After they finish speaking, everybody starts to celebrate and congratulate them. The volume in the room rises as the family begins to cheer.
Confusion and embarrassment overtakes you. You didn’t hear what your niece said. What just happened?
You wish you could pull someone aside and learn what you missed. It seems as if it was a significant announcement. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch 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 later discover that your niece announced she is pregnant.
You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you are dealing with hearing loss.
How to Get Ready For The Holidays
You’re already organizing that memorable meal and getting presents in anticipation. You typically get your shopping done well in advance of the holiday.
You’re arranging zoom calls and getting your house decorated. All of this is worthwhile.
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.
