Give the Gift of Hearing This Holiday Season
With one out of every five individuals in the United States suffering from some form of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at the least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And bearing in mind the strong connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideally suited opportunity to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a few excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who actually enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, making them a must have. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can eliminate the trouble and cost connected with the work of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to buy? Give us a call.
Custom-made Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of specialty ear protection can reduce the risk of hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And in contrast to the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially manufactured to inhibit harmful sounds while preserving the essential sounds. This gets rid of the “muffled” sound associated with foam earplugs.
Talk to us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids will require periodic upkeep and cleaning to assure ongoing, maximum performance. And while this can’t be avoided, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill dangerous pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers clear away excessive moisture and lengthen the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools include a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not being used and can make transport easier.
Not sure which accessories you’ll require for a particular hearing aid? Give us a call and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these gadgets turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium earphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will detect an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Did you know that several hearing aid models can be operated with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a tremendous gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly control hearing aid volume and can modify the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you want to go all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
As you can imagine, you can’t just venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is distinctive and will require a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to finally get the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a greater overall quality of life.
And how many gifts can accomplish that?
