Get a Hearing Test to Appreciate the Sounds of the Season
Don’t waste another second missing out on the joyous sounds of the holidays, not to mention all the wonderful noises that exist around you throughout the year. If you have untreated hearing loss now is the time to schedule a hearing test.
During a hearing test, an audiologist can examine things like how your ears respond to loud sounds, how well you hear speech and what kind of hearing loss you have. These evaluations are quick, painless and provide valuable same-day insight into your hearing health.
If you have hearing loss, your audiologist will work with you to find the right pair of hearing aids for your specific needs and lifestyle. They will guide you and support you throughout the process of finding your new normal and maximizing your hearing experience.
Hearing Aids Help You Connect with Others
One of the biggest benefits of hearing aids is that they renew your confidence in social interactions and improve your relationships with others. The holidays are all about connecting and spending time with your loved ones. Hearing aids can help you do that.
One study, published in The Hearing Journal examined the relationship between quality of life and hearing aid use. They found that nearly 70% of patients using hearing aids reported an improved ability to communicate with others. They also noted that 90% of patients who experienced a 70% reduction in their hearing handicap reported a significant improvement in their quality of life.
Make the most of this holiday season and start the new year off right by taking control of your hearing health.
