Evanston Audiology - Evanston, IL

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

Cinnamon and nutmeg wafting in the air. A joyous spirit and green, red, and blue lights fill your home. You love catching up with your family as your grandchildren dance, sing and play.

You don’t want to miss any of this joyous celebration.

You’re so excited, you can’t wait.

Are You Missing Something?

You try to spend as much meaningful time as possible with friends and family throughout the year, but the holidays are different. Every second is precious.

Yet the drone of background noise often drowns out the voices of people speaking to you. You frequently 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, everybody begins to celebrate and congratulate them. As the family cheers, the noise in the room increases.

Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads across your face. You didn’t hear the announcement. You don’t know what’s happening.

You want to ask somebody. Whatever it was, it’s significant. But you’re feeling embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.

Asking people to repeat it never has the same feeling. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to be disruptive.

You later discover that your niece announced she is pregnant.

You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing impairment.

Preparing For The Holidays

You’re already planning that special meal and purchasing presents in anticipation. You’ve never been someone to wait until the last moment to get all of your shopping done.

You’re decorating your home and planning zoom calls. All of this is important.

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

You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.

Why You Shouldn’t Hold Off

We can immediately offer proper solutions even if you only have mild hearing loss.

Whatever you may be doing during the holiday, these solutions will help you hear better. When there’s lots of background noise, using hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.

You will be able to understand what people are saying on the phone also.

It’s always better to begin early. It takes a bit of time to become confident with some of these solutions. Getting treated right now means you’re prepared when the family starts gathering – either online or at your home. Make sure you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.

Don’t get shut out this holiday. Call us for a hearing assessment.
