The air filled with the sweet smells of nutmeg and cinnamon. A joyous spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your house. You enjoy catching up with your family members as your grandchildren sing, dance and play.
You don’t want to miss any of this memorable occasion.
Are you ready?
Is There Anything You May be Missing?
You try to spend as much meaningful time as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are different. You don’t want to miss a moment.
But the voices of the people speaking around you sometimes get drowned out by the din of background noise. You often need to have them repeat what they said.
At one point during the festivities your niece and her husband have something important to announce. After they finish speaking, everyone starts to celebrate and congratulate them. The noise in the room rises as the family starts to cheer.
Your skin feels warm as a puzzled look spreads across your face. You didn’t catch what your niece said. You don’t know what’s happening.
You wish you could pull someone aside and learn what you missed. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But missing it the first time has you feeling embarrassed.
It just isn’t the same when somebody has to repeat it. And you don’t want to interrupt the cheering.
You later discover that your niece announced she’s 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
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 planning zoom calls and getting your home decorated. All of this is worthwhile.
But it isn’t as important as ensuring that you get to enjoy this holiday with family and friends without missing out on the conversation.
You should get a hearing test sooner than later.
